Ligue 1: Moses Simon out of PSG vs Nantes game with injury

Nigeria winger Moses Simon is in the running for Nantes Player of the Month for September.

Super Eagles winger Moses Simon was not included in Nantes’ squad to face Paris Saint-Germain in Saturday’s league game.

Simon was missing in the 20-man squad published on the club’s Twitter handle on Friday.

His omission does not come as a surprise after he suffered a thigh muscle strain, in the Eagles’ home tie against Cape Verde last Tuesday which ended 1-1.

He was stretched off in the 68th minute and was replaced by Shehu Abdullahi.

The 26-year-old has been impressive for Nantes this season after notching up six assists in 13 league games.

Nantes will hope to secure a positive result at PSG without their Nigerian import having failed to win in back-to-back fixtures.

On their part, PSG are unbeaten in their last six games and lead the standing on 34 points, 10 points ahead of second-placed Lens.
