CSKA Moscow Nigerian forward Aaron Samuel has lost his place in the matchday squad of the Russian side after failing to impress since joining the team permanently in the summer.
The 23 year old has scored just once in nine matches this season in all competitions, with the goal coming in the 2-1 win over Tosno in the league on the 9th of August.
Samuel who had his loan spell cut short by injury after joining the team in the summer of 2016 has been anything but brilliant for the team, a form which has lead to his axing from the first team.
The decision to axe him from the matchday squad of the club was taken after the forward failed to deliver against second division side Avangard Kursk, a game they lost 1-0 to crash out of the Russian Cup.
Against Avargand Kursk he was rated as one of the worst players on display for the club, and it appears the game has now cost him is placement in the team, with the forward no where near the line up for the 1-4 loss to Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League.
