    Moses have been fired by the Chelsea Club. Stop looking for him whenever you see Chelsea playing.

  • Moses remains one of the greatest players in the history of Nigeria and he will do well without chelsea

    Moses made a great mistake by quiting the national team prematurely…. I believe he is regretting that poor decision now.
    One thing this players fail to understand is that, your value increases as you continually play for your country and not the other way round. Moreso, some team condition for record signing is that you should have played upto 75% matches for your country. It is against this background that friendly matches are organised yo rotate the players as well as preent them with sufficient playing time in the national team to boost their career.
    Players that are sliding towards exit the door are the ones that go to retirement to enable them make cool cash for retirement. Despite the quality he posses, without playing time and coupled with the riot act been made clear by the coach, he needs to move to another club. Furter delay will ruine his football career
    This should be a lesson for te young and upcoming footballers. Know that you need the country more in other to excel in your football career.

    I expect him to act like a warrior which he had ever been … in Nigerian colours. No need acting like a cry-cry baby. Time to spread those wings beyond Chelsea.

    No one will hire Moses for now. Even if he pledge to return to Super Eagle at the moment, Moses will discover that he is no more needed. He wants to invest his couple of millions he has saved into Real Estate enterprise. So sad for a player regarded so highly throughout the World just last summer. He would have turned South Africa inside out. I am praying his story will not end in shambles.From grace to grass. I have seen one before.
