Chairman of the LMC and second Vice President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Shehu Dikko, have disclosed to newsmen that the NFF plan to travel to London for talks with Victor Moses who announced his retirement from National assignment after the world cup citing family and club commitment as reasons over his decision to quit the Super Eagles.
Dikko stated that the national team still need Moses in their ranks and went on to say that Chelsea winger will bid farewell to the club in the January transfer window, permanently or on a temporary basis, due to his lack of playing opportunities.
”We plan to visit him very soon and have another chat with him. He is part of us, everybody knows that he is a brilliant player, he can play anywhere,” Dikko said.
”He is not playing because he is a bad player, he is not playing because the tactics the team are adopting does not suit him.
”In the old system they were playing, Moses was indispensable, now another coach has come with another system.
”Hopefully by January he’ll get himself sorted, we still need him.”
If the Chelsea forward makes a U-turn and rescinds his decision to quit international football, Dikko says this will give manager Gernot Rohr more options in attack.
”We need as much as possible enough competition in the national team, the coach (Rohr) needs to have a lot of headache in choosing the first eleven.
”If you have that kind of a headache it means you have a good team, you can see now we have injuries and nobody is panicking,” Dikko told all Nigeria Soccer.
