David Moyes has admitted he is waiting anxiously for test results to return from nine players who were released on international duty before they can rejoin first-team training this afternoon.
The manager told reporters this morning over Zoom ‘The big problem is that we are waiting – we are training this afternoon – for the testing to get confirmed from the international players, we have not had all the test results back yet which is a bit disappointing. We have to wait until they come back to see if the players can train.”
