Ghana striker Matthew Amoah could not join Heracles Almeloâ€™s mid-season training camp in the Spanish city of Benahavis due to injury.
The Dutch Eredivise side held their first training session on Sunday without the Ghana international.
Amoah picked up a hamstring injury last month and has since not recovered.
The 33-year-old made nine league appearances and scored one goal before the winter break.
Heracles are 13thÂ on table after 18 rounds of matches.
