Kwadwo Asamoah dropped as Moses makes Inter Milan’s Europa League squad


Kwadwo Asamoah will not be playing for Inter Milan in the knockout stage of the Uefa Europa League this season.

The 31-year-old was excluded from the selection on Monday while Nigeria’s Victor Moses made the 22-man team for the competition.

Asamoah’s last outing for the Nerazzurri was against Roma on December 6 when he came on as a 72nd-minute substitute, and since then, he has been battling to regain match fitness after recovering from a knee injury.

He was an unused substituted in Inter Milan’s 2-0 win over Udinese on Sunday and featured in three Champions League games before their eventual demotion to the Europa League.

Meanwhile, Moses who reunited with Antonio Conte after completing a six-month loan from Chelsea in January, joins other new signings like Christian Eriksen and Ashley Young in the selection.

The Nigerian midfielder has played two games for the San Siro outfit since his arrival, and he made his Serie A bow on Sunday.

Inter Milan have been paired against Bulgarian club Ludogorets in the Europa League Round of  32 with the first-leg scheduled for February 20.
