Nigeria forward Moses Simon has been tipped to be a huge success in LaLiga.
The Super Eagles star joined Levante from KAA Gent this month after missing the Russia 2018 World Cup through injury.
“One of the players we’re looking forward to, to make the LaLiga season special is Moses Simon,” Javier Del Rio, LaLiga Nigeria Country Manager, told reporters in Lagos on Thursday.
“Simon is a very talented player and he’ll be important for Levante. He was unlucky to have missed the World Cup but Gernot Rohr will be counting on him for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
“He played yesterday for Levante in a friendly and wore No.7. He’s a talented young player, very good.”
Del Rio added that more Nigerian players could still arrive in LaLiga before the transfer window in Spain is shut for this season at the end of August.
