Moses Simon misses Levante’s LaLiga opener at Real Betis


Nigeria winger Moses Simon will not take part in his Levante UD’s opening match against Real Betis at Estadio Benito Villamarin in Sevilla on Friday.

The 23-year-old missed out on a place to the FIFA World Cup in Russia owing to an injury and despite recovering that setback suffered a thigh injury on August 15 in a pre-season friendly match for his club.

Simon has missed training prior to his club’s first match.

Levante head coach Paco Lopez has now left out the winger from a 19-man squad that travelled to Sevilla for Friday’s match.

The time-frame for the return of the Super Eagles winger remains unknown as Levante aim to navigate a difficult start to LaLiga this season with matches against Celta Vigo and Valencia to follow their trip to Real Betis.

Simon joined Levante from Belgian side KAA Gent this summer.
