Moses Poised For First League Start For Fenerbahce Vs Konyaspor

Nigerian winger, Victor Moses is poised to make his first Turkish Super League start for Fenerbahce on Saturday when the Yellow Canaries take on Konyaspor at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium, reports Completesport.com.

The 28 year old has made three substitute appearances and scored once for Fenerbahce since he arrived the club on an 18 month loan deal from Chelsea and has called on his side to focus on the game against Konyaspor who are sixth in the Turkish League table.

The Konya based outfit are unbeaten in their last six games across all competitions.

“Time to focus now on Saturday,” Moses tweeted.

Interestingly, the 2013 Africa Cup Of Nations winner, has totaled 94 minutes of football in the Turkish Super Lig so far – 68 minutes more than he played in the first-half of the English top-flight this term for Chelsea.

His only start for Fenerbahce was in Tuesday’s Europa League 1-0 first leg round of 32 win at home to Zenit St. Petersburg.

Moses was subbed off in the 85th minute for Alper Potuk after provided an assist for Islam Slimani match winner in the 21st minute.

Fenerbahce have lost once in their last four games in which Moses featured, recording three wins.

Ersun Yanal’s men are 14th in the Turkish Super Lig table on 23 points from 21 games.

    14th position is rather astonishing place for a big Turkish team like Fenerbahce.Apparently,they will move up the table in a short while because they have some very good acquisitions.
    Meanwhile,Moses according to the media echoed he missed playing for Nigeria hope this is a hint of a possible reunion because that news was a music to most super eagles fans.
    We miss you Moses and cant wait to have you back.
    I believe the nations cup will be very tough with northern Africans having the advantage of playing in a familiar terrain backed with great support from officials and neighbouring fans.Teams from the sub-Saharan part and other regions will have to deal with all this disadvantages so this is where experience comes in.The likes of Senegal,Ivory coast,Guinea,Ghana and Cameroon are coming with veterans who have seen it all at big stages and Nigeria wont be any different.We need players who can play Egypt at home with that belief of coming out victorious.The likes of Chukwueze in my opinion should be drafted to the Olympic team so that he can gain valuable experience before teaming up with super eagles in the nearest future.
    Winning the nations cup is possible with proper planning and logistics.Moses with his confidence and skill level is paramount to this mission frankly we haven’t got many players in the super eagles playing at his level.
    God bless Nigeria.

    Our message to MOSES is simple. YOUR COUNTRY WANTS YOU.

  • Victor Moses magic wand is cast on over the sea the Istanbul based club, Fenerbahce to banish into wilderness failure,stagnation, loss of points and create the pathway of success, marching them out of relegation captivity and stronghold.

    Like a fish swimming seamlessly ashore after trashing furiously in the basket and on the bare ground for a while, Moses wasted little time to adjust to his new team after being overlooked at Chelsea;he puts behind him the months of inactivity in the wilderness at Chelsea to make instant impression at his new home, albeit a loan deal, and in just this little time, he has won over the fans and coaching crew with his imperial displays which are quite impactful: the points have started coming in, the confidence of the team is back, same as the cohesion and the flair.

    In the short video clips of Fenerbache fc i have seen, it’s hard to believe that Moses has just joined the club; he exudes the confidence of a player who has been with the team for such a long time. His call for ball, his initiative, his dazzling movements,his ball holding, his dribbling runs and team play and his positioning with his well taken maiden goal are just unbelievable but truly those are the attributes and traits of a resilient player, a great man.

    I dare to say with this rich vein of form, it would be hard to stop his return to the Eagles, which is already impending.

    Victor Egharevba Moses is Nigeria’s best footballer anywhere in the world. I’ve said it long time ago. The SuperEagles surely needs his experience at this crucial time. @greenturf absolutely most definitely, the AFCON in Egypt will surely favor the North Africans because they will be in a familiar terrain and a vociferous fan base. 

    However, SuperEagles have players scattered all over Europe who are used to those circumstances. That is why we need all our veteran players with valuable experience and top notch young talents, not just any mediocre talent to prosecute the AFCON. 

    SuperEagles are always guaranteed a place in the Semifinals at any AFCON they’ve participated since 1976. Therefore, it will be quite peculiar if we don’t prosecute this AFCON with our best legs. Chukwueze is currently struggling at Villarreal coming in as substitutes in recent games, Osimhen hasn’t scored recently while Awoniyi is scoring goals for fun in recent weeks for Mouscron after switching from Gent. 

    I like the fact that Rohr has given opportunities to many young talents over the last 2 and 1/2 years. But I think the bulk of the squad to the AFCON will be the same team that went to the WorldCup in Russia. Obviously, Aina should walk into the final 23 this time replacing either Idowu or the recuperating Ebuehi. Isaac Success based on the pedigree of the league he plays in should also make the final 23 if fit. While Agu can take Joel Obi spot. The rest will have to fight for their spot. #FLY LIKE AN EAGLE INTO THE FUTURE# AFCON spirit loading………….

    • Going by Moses’s recent exploits at Fenerbache it would be hard to deny him a place at AFCON 2019. His performance is just magical and heartwarming.
      I am pretty sure alot of Nigerians are looking forward to his return to the national team.
      I salute his determination, resilience.He is true and true a professional.

      Ahead of the tournament, we need some of our best legs whereever they play and who are good enough to make 23 man list for the AFCON game.
      In the attack it will hard to dislodge the attack trio of Ahmed Musa , Victor Moses and Odion Ighalo given their experience, in an era where alot of young and promising youngsters are springing up: Ik Samuel Kalu, Henry Onyekuru, Samuel Chukwueze, Oshimen Victor, Isaac Success, Iheanacho, Simon Moses, not forgetting Chuba Akpom, who has switched alliegiance to Nigeria, former NPL goal machine Stephen Odey of Fc Zurich, Junior Ajayi of Ahly who returned from injury spell with goals, Taiwo Awoniyi who has started banging in the goals and including experienced Simy Nwankwo who is very much relevant for his big frame and aerial advantage. I cannot forget to mention the duo oc Samuel Emem Uduok and Anthony Nwakame which i have so much respect for.

    why must someone request the removal of nwakali from fidelis midfield list? we are meant to develop pur potentials and not abase them…nwakali is surely a talent and just the right man to replace Mikel obi…he is a deep lying playmaker that could dictate the game from defense…you will all agree with me that what has been killing the prospect of our players is that switch to Europe…they don’t play regularly again, get chubby and need to adapt to playing system there until that cohesion they have in u-17 becomes nowhere to be found in the super eagles…if only our league cab develop and our players can play there… super eagles will be a team to beat
