Isaac Success has been placed on special training drills by coach of Malaga Jose Gonzalez to help the Nigerian shed weight and boost their fight to escape the drop from the LaLiga.
Success joined Malaga from English Premier League side Watford on loan for the rest of the season, and it appears his lack of game time coupled with the injury he suffered months ago has lead to a weight increase for the forward.
He is presently having double sessions supervised by the fitness coach of the LaLiga side as they bid to beat him back to shape ahead of their battle to remain in the top division in Spain.
It is too soon to know if he will be fit for Malaga’s next fixture after missing their last league game against Atletico Bilbao due to his weight. Same reason why coach of the Nigerian team Gernot Rohr has severally put him on special drills whenever he is in the camp of the Super Eagles.
While his ability is not in doubt, Success has struggled to fulfil the potential that made Watford splash big to sign him from Granada two summers ago .
