The 33-year-old has not featured prominently for Spartak this season, making only 16 appearances across various competitions and contributing a goal and an assist, as reported by Championat.

Expressing his determination to bounce back stronger, he took to social media to thank fans for their support during his recovery process. The former Super Eagles player, who retired from international football after the 2018 World Cup, reiterated his commitment to returning to full fitness.

''Devastated to have suffered an injury in the game at the weekend.I will be doing all I can to recover and get back fully fit as quickly as possible to help the team. Thank you so much to everyone at the club and all of the fans for your fantastic support. I’ll be back stronger," he said on his X handle.

Since joining Spartak Moscow in October 2020, initially on loan before signing a permanent deal in July 2021, Moses has become an integral part of the team. His experience and versatility on the field have been invaluable for the Red and Whites.

Moses pays tribute to Eden Hazard

Sports Brief reported that Moses paid tribute to his former Chelsea teammate Eden Hazard after he announced his retirement from professional football.

The former Belgium international decided to call time on football at 32 after being without a club for two months after leaving Real Madrid as a free agent in the summer.

The former Lille forward reportedly rejected a move to Major League Soccer and the Saudi Pro League.
