NFF warns Victor Moses to be committed to Super Eagles or miss African Footballer of the Year title
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has told Chelsea wingback, Victor Moses, to be more committed to the national team or miss out on winning the African Footballer of the Year award. Moses reported to the team’s camp ahead of the friendly against Senegal, but returned to the Premier League club, after claiming he was carrying a knock.
It is understood that Coach Gernot Rohr was visibly angry with the player who had previously pulled out….
In an interview with The Guardian, NFF President Amaju Pinnick, said: “Moses needs to understand that with his current performance with Chelsea, he stands a chance of becoming the next African player of the year, especially if his club should win the EPL title.
“But he needs to play regularly for the national team to make such dream come true. To be honest, Moses is one of the best African players at the moment, but as I said, he needs the Super Eagles.”
Moses was expected to feature in the second friendly against Burkina Faso, which has now been called off.
