Moses Happy ‘Football Reasons’ For Joining Fenerbahce Paying Off

Victor Moses is happy with the way things have turned out for him as a loanee at Turkish Super Lig side Fenerbahce, reports Completesports.com.

The former Nigeria international took a gamble with a loan move to the former Turkish champions, Fenerbahce on an 18 months loan deal from Chelsea where he was frozen out by Maurizio Sarri.

Moses told English tabloid, The Guardian, that he joined Fenerbahce mainly for football reasons as he had other offers.

“It’s tough, as Chelsea’s a very special place for me and I’ve always had a great relationship with the fans but it became very obvious that I was not in the manager’s plans,” Moses told the Guardian.

“I have achieved great things there, but I just needed to play football and that’s why I got the move to Fenerbahce.

“It obviously wasn’t the easiest option to take. I wanted to come here because I just wanted to play football.”

“I want to make sure the club is in a better position than when I arrived and that is a huge test of myself as a player, to take them to where they want to be.”

Moses celebrates a goal with Fenerbahce teammates

Moses has played 13 Turkish Super Lig games for Fenerbahce and scored three goals.

The resourcefulness of the 28-year-old on the pitch has helped the Yellow Canaries move up to eighth position in the Turkish Super League table with a fighting chance of Europa League qualification.

“When I came here, everyone was a little bit shocked by the position they were in and that was the main reason why I came, as a big club like Fenerbahce should not be in a position like that,” Moses recalled.

“In the stadium, the atmosphere is a lot different [to England], it’s unlike anything I have ever experienced in football, every game is a must-win game and they are so passionate as they just want us to win and make everybody happy. It’s not just football, it’s a way of life here.”

Moses also recounts his experience playing in the Istanbul derbies against Besiktas and Galatasaray

“It’s a massive experience, playing against Galatasaray and Besiktas, you can feel the atmosphere, it feels like the stadium is going to fall down due to the fans singing and bouncing,” he said.

“The atmosphere is amazing, you can easily tell the passion they’ve got for football here is crazy. They just love football and want the team to win, that’s why they support the team.”
