Newcastle United target Moses Simon will miss Gent play-off games against Sporting Charleroi tomorrow, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal after a chat with the speedy ace.
Simon has been ever present for Gent since the start of the Championship play-offs in Belgium, but the forward who is heavily linked with a move to English Premier League side Newcastle United has confirmed his unavailability for tomorrow’s game.
Speaking to Owngoalnigeria.com , Simon said he is battling flu and as a matter of fact didn’t sleep all through yesterday night, hence his decision to pull out of the Charleroi clash on health grounds.
” I couldn’t sleep all night long due to a bout of flu , so I won’t be playing in tomorrow’s game against Charleroi. I will no doubt be the number one supporter of my teammates tomorrow during the game”, Simon told Owngoalnigeria.com in an exclusive chat.
Rumoured to have turned down a move to English Premier League giants Liverpool, the 23 year old said at no point in time did he grant the interview where he was quoted as saying he is not interested in a move to Liverpool.
” Liverpool is a very big team with a large squad, the type of team where you have to work extra hard to get games. Most players like such challenges and I am not different. Why will I turn down Liverpool? I didn’t grant any of such interview “.
