Spanish club, Levante, have confirmed that their Nigerian forward, Moses Simon will miss today’s (Friday) La Liga opening day clash against Real Betis at the Estadio Benito, Villamarin, Sevilla, reports Completesportsnigeria. com.
Simon picked up a muscular injury in Levante’s pre-season friendly clash against Real Zaragoza last weekend and has not been able to take part in full training this week.
Levante have now released a list of 19 players who made the trip to Sevilla for the game with Simon’s name understandably missing.
