thumbnail Hello,

Hannover coach Mirko Slomka will have to be patient with Moa Abdellaoue not yet ready to make a comeback at the weekend against Gladbach.

Bundesliga overachievers Hannover 96 have received a blow with the news that Moa Abdellaoue is not yet ready to return from his groin injury. The Norwegian goalgetter will therefore miss the weekend's clash with bottom side Borussia Moenchengladbach.

"It was a good idea to give him a break in order to allow his body to rest," Hannover coach Mirko Slomka told the pre-game press conference.

"I hope that we will be able to have him back for the final two games before the winter break."

Abdellaoue is currently leading the European Golden Shoe standings thanks to his goals not only for die Roten, but also for Norwegian side Valerenga, whom he left during the summer.
