    Sensible move. Wish you all the best. West ham would have been a disaster. Only three teams in England makes sense for African players and particularly Nigerian players; anything aside Arsenal, Chelsea n present day Liverpool will end up in disaster not because of the players fault but many other factors behind the scene.

  • According to French news outlet, L’Equipe, Ligue A giants Marseille will pay €15m plus €5m in add-ons for the ubiquitous Nigeria forward Terem Moffi following his goals-filled seasons at modest Lorient FC.

    Once finalised, Moffi will move to Marseille thereby following in the footsteps of legendary Nigerians Oruma and T. Taiwo who marvelled and mesmerised for the port city club.

    Marseille is a club steeped in history and accomplishments. With numerous domestic and international accolades including Uefa Champions League trophy, Eura League runners up medals and nine Ligue A titles, Moffi is definitely taking his career to lofty heights with this move.

    In Marseille, his reputation as a bona fide ‘high profile centre forward’ will be cemented if he goes on to produce anything close to the flamboyant outputs of Wilson Oruma and Taiye Taiwo.

    From modest FK Kauno Žalgiris in the backwater league of Lithuania, Moffi has definitely climbed the pagoda of success and greatness considering where he is now and how he got there.

    Like green snake under green grass, the Calabar born sniper wriggled his way to the echelons of French football with a tsunami of goals and all round breath-taking performances.

    And, from all indications, his best is definitely yet to come.

    As with all Super Eagles players, fans continue to wait like a cat on a hot tin roof for them to replicate club form for country therapy banishing the ghost of the Qatar World Cup miss.
