Former Chelsea star, Victor Moses has been ruled out of action for at least six weeks after a successful operation.

Moses was subbed off in Spartak Moscow’s 2-0 victory against Ural two weeks ago. And it was later confirmed that the 31-year-old injured his Achilles tendon, and would need surgery to fix it.

Spartak Moscow in a tweet via their social media handle have revealed that Moses successfully underwent surgery on his Achilles in Germany, but he would be side-lined for at least six months.

The injury setback comes at a very critical time for the retired Super Eagles star, as this season was supposed to be his second after joining the club permanently last year.

Also, with the Russo-Ukraine war, Moses has been linked with a transfer away from the club. The injury puts paid to such hopes.

Nonetheless, he would look to recover swiftly so that he would get back his best in no time.
