Inter Milan winger, Victor Moses, has suffered a major injury blow ahead of his side’s Coppa Italia second leg tie against Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo on Thursday.

Inter Milan disclosed this in a statement on their official website on Monday.

Antonio Conte’s side head to the game after losing 1-0 to Napoli in the first leg encounter last month.

“Victor Moses underwent medical tests at the Humanitas Research Hospital in Rozzano this morning, with an MRI scan on his left thigh,” a club statement read.

“The results showed a strained muscle, with Moses’ condition to be reassessed in the coming days.”

Moses has been impressive for Inter Milan since he joined the club on loan from Chelsea last January.

The former Super Eagles star played full 90 minutes of Inter Milan’s Europa League win against Ludogorets last Thursday as the Serie A giants advanced to the last 16 with a 4-1 aggregate win.

NFF to allow Eguavoen remain Super Eagles’ coach

Published

on

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has said Augustine Eguavoen can keep the national team job on a permanent basis if he wants.

The 56-year-old stepped in on an interim basis after Gernot Rohr was sacked in December.

Eguavoen has so far impressed at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, with the Super Eagles winning all their Group D fixtures.

However, he was supposed to hand over to Jose Peseiro after the tournament.

But ESPN reports that the NFF is having second thoughts about that.

“We will have to leave him there, unless he doesn’t want the job,” an NFF source said.

Eguavoen is currently the NFF Technical Director, but the football house would allow him handle both roles.

“What we are even thinking of right now is to give Eguavoen the two jobs. The national team plays about 10 matches a year, so during those times when they are not playing, he can carry on with his other responsibilities.

“Coaching is very touch and go. Right now, he has a stable job being Technical Director where he gets paid by FIFA. To leave that for being a coach where things can change any moment and he can get fired would be very risky.

“That is why we want him to keep the two positions. So, whatever happens, he has shown that he can excel in both and if anything happens with the coaching, he can go back to just being technical director,” the official added.
