Moses: Keshi was right to drop me

Moses: Keshi was right to drop me

–Stoke City star says he will be back in Eagles soon

Stoke City striker Victor Moses has backed Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, on his exclusion from the team in the remaining 2015 Orange AFCON qualifiers.

The Nigerian winger has delivered amazing performances for Stoke in the last couple of games despite just getting back from injury, and many have criticized Keshi for not calling him.

However, the 23-year-old backed his coach’s decision in an interview with Stoke Sentinel.

“There’s a reason why I’m not in it (the squad), and the manager has said I’m just getting back from injury and he didn’t want to take the risk with me.

“I think he was right to do that not call me up. I’m the sort of player who always wants to represent Nigeria, but I just need to make sure I get myself back to full fitness, he added.

Moses was on duty again at the weekend when Stoke shocked Tottenham Hotspurs2-1 at White Hart Lane.

  • OK O. MY FRIEND YOU HAVE OYIBO MENTALITY. A REAL NIGERIA WILL NOT AGREE WITH THE COACH. COMPARE TEVEZ WITH UCHE OKECHUKWU. TEVEZ WAS SILENCE THROUGHOUT HIS NON INVITATION TO THE ARGENTINE TEAM BUT UCHE WAS HAVING A RUNNING BATTLE WITH KESHI. SO MOSES BY BLOOD YOU ARE NIGERIAN BUT BY ATTITUDE YOU ARE BRITISH. YOU ARE A NIGERIAN BORN BRITISH CITIZEN.

  • @DJENIKO Chris,

    Uche never had a running battle with Keshi. Rather, it was Keshi that would not let a sleeping do lie by over flogging a dead issue.

    @Djeniko Chris, are you kidding or what? Seriously? This guy have bn silent all this while. Uche is far matured than keshi in all aspects if you don’t know. Everyone can testified to it. Nobody cares if you follow Keshi blindly but all I know is, Keshi’s attitude is bad towards his players. hmmm, even if Keshi qualifies Eagles to Morocco 2015, he have no solution to his damage. We will understand my words soon, if we qualify for Morocco. The truth is bitter. God bless Nigeria!
