Coles’ visit to Huddersfield will coincide with an independent assessment of Mooy’s injury on Friday, 21 December 2018.
Caltex Socceroos medical staff will then make a final determination regarding Mooy’s capacity to represent Australia at the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 following further engagement with Mooy and Huddersfield Town.
Caltex Socceroos Head Coach Graham Arnold said FFA shares a goal with Huddersfield Town to see Mooy return to competitive action as soon as possible.
“We have agreed on this plan with Huddersfield Town and know that they are doing everything they can to manage Aaron’s injury,” Arnold said.
“However with such an important tournament coming up for Australia we want to explore every option available to give Aaron the chance to feature for the Socceroos in the United Arab Emirates.
“Of course, Aaron’s long-term career and fitness remains our primary concern and we will not rush him to return to match play before he is safe and confident to do so, however we are also committed to leaving no stone unturned in our attempt to have him available for us at the tournament,” he said.
