Real reasons Victor Moses quit playing for Super Eagles

Image result for Victor MosesVictor Moses  has announced his immediate retirement  from international football to concentrate fully on his club career.

Nigeria  were beaten 2-0 by South Africa in  their first group  qualifying match  in Uyo last year, and the three-time African champions need a convincing  win over Seychelles next month to keep qualification hopes alive.

In his statement,  Moses said he informed  Rohr that he  had decided to call time on his six-year international career  “by telephone”.

Moses quickly become a fan favourite after he helped Nigeria win the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa – after he switched his international allegiance from England to Nigeria, where he and his parents were born. He represented  England  at U16, U17, U19 and U21 levels.

Some of  his fans have taken to social medial to express their shock and  sadness  at   his  decision’s to quit the Eagles.

“I would like to announce that after much thought I have made the decision to retire from playing international football,” Moses, who represented Nigeria at the Brazil 2014 and Russia 2018 World Cups,  wrote.

“I have experienced some of the best moments of my life wearing the Super Eagles shirt and have memories with me that will last a lifetime.

“Nothing will ever compete to what it felt like to represent Nigeria on behalf of our country.

“However I feel that now is the right time to step away in order to be able to focus fully on club career and my young family as well as to allow the next generation of Super Eagles stars the opportunity to step up and to flourish.

Image result for paul pogbaIt has been reported that Barcelona president Josep  Bartomeu has left the door open on a potential move for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, after saying the club could still do business before the Spanish transfer window closes, Sky sports reports.

Despite being handed the captain’s armband for the opening 2-1 win against Leicester City, Pogba’s comments after the game hinted at tensions at Old Trafford.

Asked about Pogba after Barcelona’s 2-1 Super Cup win against Sevilla, Bartomeu said: “I won’t speak of any names, we have respect for all clubs and there are 20 days left.

“We’ll see which players come out. We’re focused on the league, so it’s best to ask (Eric) Abidal,(Ramon) Planes or Pep Segura about players.

“There’s still time to do business.”

Andres Iniesta, Paulinho and Andre Gomes have left Barcelona this summer and the Catalan club may have to wait if they are to further strengthen their midfield following the arrivals of Arturo Vidal and Arthur, with Manchester United unlikely to want to part with Pogba during this window.

“We are never going to find another Andres Iniesta, that’s impossible because there is only one and he is in Japan,” said Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde.
