Inter Milan’s Moses doubtful for Bologna game after suffering from muscle fatigue

The Serie A outfit confirmed the 29-year-old is fighting a fitness problem after undergoing a medical examination on Friday

Victor Moses is just a doubt for Inter Milan’s Serie A fixture against Bologna on Sunday after the club confirmed he’s suffering from muscle fatigue.

The Nerazzurri disclosed that the ex-Nigeria international had a medical examination at the Humanitas Research Hospital in Rozzano on Friday which confirmed the situation in his left thigh.

Moses was for action for 69 minutes as his team cruised to a 6-0 victory over Brescia in Wednesday’s league game, before he was replaced by Antonio Candreva.

Ahead of their next Serie A fixture against Bologna on Sunday, Inter Milan confirmed the 29-year-old’s injury blow and he may sit out the game at San Siro Stadium.

“Victor Moses was examined this morning at the Humanitas Research Hospital in Rozzano,” the club tweeted.

“Tests showed he is suffering from some muscle fatigue in his left thigh flexors.”

Moses is currently in his fifth loan spell since that he joined Chelsea from Wigan Athletic in 2012. He had temporary deals at Liverpool, Stoke City, West Ham United and Fenerbahce before switching to Italy.

Moses joined Antonio Conte’s team on a short-term loan in January, after struggling for game time at Fenerbahce.

He has played 12 matches up to now for Inter Milan across all competitions and he’s registered an assist in the procedure.

After winning the Premier League title and FA Cup with Conte at Chelsea, Moses thought we would reunite with the Italian manager who he called his “mentor” in Milan.

“He is my mentor and friend. I have played under a lot of managers and I’ve loved every single one of them. The most important one was Antonio Conte,” that he said.

“At Chelsea he just came in and changed every thing. He is definitely an amazing man; he totally changed my game in all honesty.”

Inter Milan are third on the Serie A dining table with 64 points from 29 matches. They are eight points behind leaders Juventus and four points behind second-placed Lazio.

Moses’ contract at Chelsea will expire in June 2021 however the Nerazzurri support the option to make his loan deal permanent when it expires at the conclusion of the summer season.
