What Does Missing Training Mean?
Thanks to the power of football contracts, players have relatively few ways of forcing themselves out of their clubs. Moises Caicedo is using one of these tools as he missed training with the side recently. This is a very clear sign that he wants a move out of the club, and there is plenty of interest surrounding him. As a strategy this doesn’t always work, but clubs very rarely want to keep assets that are a waste of resources. He’s also made a very public plea to leave the club, noting the money that he could earn for Brighton & Hove Albion.
