After initially missing out to join the rest of the squad on a trip to Australia on Wednesday night, the duo of Super Eagles’ Victor Moses and Kenneth Omeruo alongside Antonio Rudiger on Thursday flew to join the team.
According to reports, all three of them were now part of the pre-season build up of the Blues in Australia.
Rudiger and Moses will have a fight on their hands to convince Maurizio Sarri of their qualities.
Rudiger and Moses were key players last season but in positions that are likely to be greatly affected or flat out excised by Sarri’s new schemes.
Rudiger should be able to transition to a more traditional center back in a back four, and Moses is certainly not unfamiliar with playing on either the right or the left wing, but they are roles that neither of them has played regularly in the last two seasons.
As with the rest of the players, the first couple days will see them complete some physical exercises and tests.
While Omeruo may go out on loan again or will finally secure a permanent move somewhere.
Real training then begins early next week, after the rest of the team return from Australia.
