Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh has revealed that he advised Victor Moses to leave Chelsea for a club where he will get regular playing chances. Moses joined West Ham United on a season-long loan deal on May 31.
“I spoke to Victor Moses. I told him that he played so many games for Stoke City last season. I also told him that with the many players Mourinho was buying in the summer, I was not sure (Moses) would get to play very much.
“I told him I needed a Moses that was playing matches regularly at club level. Moses then told me that he would do anything to play for Nigeria and informed me that he would be speaking to his manager the next day. As we all know, Moses is now with West Ham where he is virtually guaranteed regular football week in week out,”
He continued, “A fit Victor Moses would have done us a world of good (in that game against Tanzania). The moment he returns to fitness, I will call him up to the national team because we need him as we need the best to play for us.
He also stressed that players who are not playing regularly at their clubs will not be called up because it will be difficult to ascertain the level of their fitness.
“It will also be unfair to keep those who play regularly for their clubs on the bench and play those who are not simply because they play for some big club.” He concluded.
