Officials of English Premier League club, Stoke City are lamenting over an injury that will sideline Nigerian striker Victor Moses for about two months.
Moses who is on-loan at the EPL side suffers a thigh injury, and has been ruled out for 8 weeks.
“It’s bad news on Victor Moses, a problem with his thigh,” Stoke assistant manager Mark Bowen told bbcradio.
“He will be out with anything up to six to eight weeks. It’s a big hit. He had a scan and it’s not good.
“At the moment we’re deciding with Chelsea whether to go back and have the rehab there or stay with our team.”
Nigeria international Moses, who joined Chelsea for a reported 9 million pounds in 2012 but spent most of last season on loan at Liverpool, has scored one goal in 12 appearances so far for Mark Hughes’ side.
Stoke have received better news on defender Marc Wilson, who missed Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat by Burnley.
“Hopefully he will be available for the weekend after more intensive treatment”, Bowen said. “Our problems at the back are well documented. We had four or five players out injured on Saturday”.
Stoke, who are 11th in the Premier League table, travel to Liverpool on Saturday.
