The 28 year old footballer will be hoping the rest will rejuvenate him ahead of the upcoming season following a below par show this term.

The former Inter Milan and Real Socieadad midfielder struggled to earn consistent play time with the Crusaders, an outfit that was eventually relegated from the Italian top flight competition after finishing last.

The player has consequently been omitted from the national football team squad that has commenced preparations for the 2017 Africa Nations Cup qualifiers.
