Moses back in training this week

19 August 2015, 11:06

Abuja - As reactions continue to pour in over Chelsea winger Victor Moses’s omission from the list of players called up by the coach of the Nigeria senior national team Sunday Oliseh, a new twist have been added to the drama with reports indicating the 24-year-old will return to training this week.

Oliseh reportedly excluded Moses from his 18 man foreign based players list, for Nigeria’s next month 2017 Africa cup of Nations qualifier game, against Tanzania in Dar Es Salam but according to various Chelsea news source, Moses is set to return to training this week and is even in contention to face West Bromwich Albion at the weekend.

Moses confirmed on twitter two days back that a small injury had kept him out of the tie against Manchester City, although he had not appeared on any injury reports and was not mentioned by manager Jose Mourinho either, ahead of the clash at the Etihad which Chelsea lost 0-3.

However, according to the guardian Mourinho chose to have Victor Moses back in training this week and possibly in contention at The Hawthorns after a slight groin injury. The Nigerian international, who has spent time on loan at Liverpool and Stoke in recent campaigns, was one of the more impressive performers on the pre-season trip to the United States.
