Super Eagles forward, Terem Moffi will be sidelined for two weeks as a result of injury, Abbeylivenetwork.com reports.
Moffi sprained his ankle in Lorient’s 0-0 draw against Reims last weekend.
The 23-year-old was replaced by Mali international, Ibrahima Kone in the 25th minute.
Moffi has been one of the breakout stars for Lorient during this campaign. The Nigerian forward has netted eight times already in Ligue 1 this season, putting him joint third in the goalscorer rankings, tied with Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappé (23).
However, he won’t be able to add to his tally this week. Lorient currently sit second in Ligue 1, just three points behind leaders PSG. They will be looking to keep pace with the Parisian side when they visit Troyes on Sunday, but they will have to do with Moffi.
The Nigerian striker will certainly miss Sunday’s tie, and in a communiqué, the club added, “the duration of his absence will ve specified in the coming days.”
