London (AFP) -Ukraine national team Andriy Yarmolenko will miss West Ham’s Premier League match in Liverpool on Saturday, the London club has announced.
Forward was taken a break after Russia invaded his hometown last week, and Hammers manager David Moyes said at a pre-match press conference on Friday that he wasn’t ready to return to Anfield.
“He continues to train, but he never goes to Liverpool with us,” Moise said.
“I don’t think he’s ready. I want to give him the opportunity to do everything he can for his family and country. He feels a little stuck in the current situation. I think that there.”
Scottish boss Moise said recent events made him feel overwhelmed.
“I feel helpless. It’s not just me as a football coach, but us as a country and a population. I think we all feel like we can’t do anything,” he said. Added.
“We can only give him our full support. We are constantly asking if there is anything we can do.
“I talked to him for 20 minutes this morning and tried to ask some questions about what was happening.”
West Ham is the fifth most impressive on the table, just two points behind the Champions League standings.
However, there is still a big difference of 15 points from 2nd place Liverpool.
The trip to Merseyside will be a busy week for West Ham, who hosted the wolf last Sunday, before being knocked out of the FA Cup by Premier League rival Southampton on Wednesday.
Unfortunate Moise said:
“We have a match on Sunday, a cup match on Wednesday, and now we’re playing again on Saturday, so three matches in six days aren’t right.
“But they (West Ham players) are really resilient.
“Whenever they had to keep playing, even during blockades and busy times, they always backed it up and got well again.”
