Chelsea’s Victor Moses and Watford’s Isaac Success risk suspension from Premier League after withdrawing from international duty.
Moses, playing a new role as a wing-back, was man of the match for Chelsea in a 2-0 win at Hull City on Saturday, but he said his hamstrings will have to be assessed by his London club.
According to the Sun, Nigerian Football Federation suspect that Moses and Isaac did not make genuine claims about their injuries.
“We know the two players had good games and there was no sign of injury on the duo during or after the game,” an NFF source told Completesportsnigeria.com via the Sun.
“It came as a surprise to hear later that Moses was injured and that he would not be available for the game and Success finished his team’s game before claiming injury.”
“Honestly, they won’t go unpunished if our investigation turns out as we are suspecting,” added the source.
“In fact, we are considering writing a protest to FIFA if we find out that they connived with their respective clubs to feign injuries and stay away from the matches.”
He could be suspended from next week’s Premier League games and it will be the first time a player has been banned.
