A member of the board of the Nigeria Football Federation ( NFF) has exclusively revealed to Owngoalnigeria.com that there are concerns over the scan result of Gent forward Moses Simon.
A ultrasound scan was carried out on the forward which made the team doctor to rule him out of the World Cup as he will be out for at least four to five weeks according to the team doctor.
Coach Gernot Rohr revealed yesterday that Simon could undergo another test to determine the duration which he will be out before a decision will be taken on his possible exclusion from the team.
Unlike the first scan, which was done using the ultrasound technology, the next scan would be done using the MRI method which is believed to be more accurate in revealing the length of time it will take an injury to heal.
The destination for the MRI scan has now been changed again according to a board member of the NFF which has further led to talks about complexity in the first results which ruled him out of the World Cup.
” As at yesterday it was agreed that he should have the scan in England but this afternoon shortly before departure for Abuja, the team doctor said the scan will be done in Abuja and not England “, he told Owngoalnigeria.com on the condition of anonymity.
” I honestly don’t want to speculate but it’s obvious that somebody could be trying to toy with the career of the young man. The result of the second scan will go a long way in revealing any sort of conspiracy against Simon”.
