English club Chelsea, drops Victor Moses



English club Chelsea omits Victor Moses from the squad to face Sparta Prague in their Europa League tie Thursday.

The Nigerian international  had been quickly recalled for the trip to the Czech Republic which forced him to travel back to England from South Africa instead of heading to Abuja with his teammates.

Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez has  avoided making the same mistake as Celtic manager, Neil Lennon, who played Efe Ambrose against Juventus two days after the Africa Cup of Nations final match in South Africa.

Ambrose, who only arrived in Glasgow on match day, turned out a huge deficit to Celtic despite his sterling performance for Nigeria in South Africa. Lennon would admit on Wednesday that he took “a gamble” by fielding Ambrose.

Even though Mikel Obi and Moses were initially in the game plan, Chelsea later exempted Mikel but finally left out Moses who only arrived in London on Tuesday for the Wednesday flight to Prague.
