"Like some of our players, he came back with some issues,"
said Nuno, who was named the Premier League's Manager of the Month for August on Friday.
"Sonny is not so well, but let's wait for the club to make the proper announcement and explain to you better what kind of injury he has."
The manager also refused to give any clarification about the player’s injury when he was asked for further information.
"I don't know. Let's wait and see. The doctors will make the proper diagnostics."
Son’s absence will make

When questioned on the whereabouts of his South American trio, Nuno explained:
"I can tell you that they are in Croatia. That's what we decided to do to try to avoid more problems.
"So the solution was to try to get them in a country where after that they can join the group. Now they are working with the sports science, a physio, in Croatia."
