“Hopefully he might be able to train in the next couple of days, Rom. Let’s see what happens.
“You never know what happens in football. He’s not been able to train but he’s not been that bad that we had to send him home, we still had hope he was going to be fit to play in Australia, Shanghai and Singapore.
