Rohr Ready To Welcome Moses Back If…

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has revealed Victor Moses will be welcomed back to the squad only if he is prepared to give 100% to the team reports Completesports.com.

Moses retired from international football after featuring for Nigeria at the 2018 World Cup in Russia at the age of 27 which Rohr thinks was a bit too early for the Chelsea winger.

“Victor Moses is a very good player for Nigeria. I believe it was too early for such a good player to stop international football when he did but we have to respect his decisions,” Rohr told Completesports.com.

“If he changes his mind we will welcome him but he has to find that motivation within himself to come back and be ready to give his 100% at all time as we know he can.

“Then of course, it is important that he gets back to playing regularly at his club and get his sharpness back.”

Moses has been capped 37 times for the Super Eagles scoring 12 times since making his debut in 2012.

He was part of the Super Eagles squad that won the Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria in 2013, and he represented the nation at two World Cups, in 2014 and 2018.

Meanwhile Nigeria Football Federation president Amaju Pinnick is set to meet Victor Moses to discuss his international retirement in a fortnight.

    We don’t want Moses again,we have lots of better players who are playing day in day out,we don’t him and Mr coach don’t come and destroy these good team you have built already with Mr Shakara moses

    How many times can we say the same thing….we don’t need moses anymore.

  • Guys, unlike Keshi, Siasia and Oliseh, Rohr is a good player manager (Siaia was the worst, casuing us to loose Emenike and Enyeama at almost the same time). He can manage players’ ego and get them to give their best. Let’s remember, Roger Milla was persuaded to come out of retirement for Cameroun’s squad for Italia 90 and his skills and experience made all the difference at that World Cup and announced Cameroun to the world. I also think when Rohr finally succeeds to get in Moses, he should rotate the captain’ band between him, Mikel and Musa.

    • Sorry, I meant Oliseh was the worst player manager.

    • My brother, your 100% right, you got it, God bless you dear, Moses is a good player, so we need him back.

  • Yes: only a rejuvenated Victor Moses with renewed passion for international football and back playing regular club football is welcome back to the national team.

    Any other version of Victor Moses should stay retired.

    Moses has moved on so have the fans and super eagles.Three very good wingers have emerged as a result,they are Onyekuru,Kalu and Chukwueze so bringing back Moses though would improve our options but could slow the development of the younger players discovered after his retirement.
    Well it’s upto the coach but majority of the fans have moved on from Moses and I think he’s not really bothered about playing for us again so why persuade someone who is not desirous to take the place of those who are eager to bring glory to the country.
    I may not have a better answer to that I think the gaffer does.
    God bless Nigeria!

    I don’t know why this mumu coach wants this Unserious player back in the squad…

    Options full ground you haven’t invited them and you are calling for a player who cant rise in various occasions when we need him
    Fumbled at the WC..
    Wanna focus on Chelsea..
    Idiot warming bench there,
    He’s not even warming bench oo.
    He won’t make match day squad

    Kalu, Moses simon, are ready to soar why call on player that will be falling down anyhow.
    Talents are all over Europe go for them every one is replaceable

    Now he wants to return after he has met his waterloo at his club. The river that forgets its source will soon run dry. For him to come back, he should be prepared to play to the Coach’s instruction. That was his major problem at the world cup, he wanted to force the coach to play as a winger always and not as wing back he used to play for Chelsea under Conte. When he relunctantly played that role against Iceland he made an assist and we won the game easily, but when his ego relapsed against Argentina, we lost so painfully.

    We have already moved on without Moses. We can only wish him happy retirement. Now he wants to return after he has met his waterloo at his club. The river that forgets its source will soon run dry. For him to come back, he should be prepared to play to the Coach’s instruction. That was his major problem at the world cup, he wanted to force the coach to play as a winger always and not as wing back he used to play for Chelsea under Conte.

      We rather lose when Messi is in the squad and win when he’s not.
      Apparently, Messi’s presence has a way of deflating any courage our boys have to take the game to the Argies.
      We won them by 4 goal to 1 and 4 goals to 2 in the absence of their talisman Lionel Messi but the moment he is back in the team our players developed cold feet and are vulnerable to defeat.
      Until his retirement they will always have one against us sadly so.

    The return of Victor Moses is not a bad idea but my fear is that hopefully, the manager will be able to manage his ego.

    Although, we have many options this time around but when the team at the middle of the sea, they can not functioning well without experience players.

    Victor deserves the second chance in my own opinion. If we have Mikel Obi, Ahmed Musa and Victor Moses in this current squad, their presence alone is a huge advantage for coach Rohr.

    What is really Super in coach Rohr is how he manages his players. The coach is really good at this. It is well by God’s grace. God bless Nigeria!!!

  • Presh 2 months ago

    Moses is not the reason we lost to Argentina. Point of correction, but Mr Rohr please let’s move on. He has moved on.

  • I dont think Moses will like to come back with then kind of ego he has.

  • Omo9ja 2 months ago

    Just in. Egypt will host 2019 Afcon according to Shara Football. We really needed our best players to represent us in Egypt. To be honest, Egypt has what it takes to host the tournament. God bless Nigeria!!!

      My mistake, “Sahara Football” I meant to say. God bless Nigeria!!!

    Let us focus on what we have on ground now, we don’t want any boss in our team again, yes i loved them until he fumbled saying he retired so he can seat down and warm Chelsea bench,he his not even warming it ,he his lost. We should use what we got for now ,the guys are playing and they are very good.We got players every where in every wing we want now

  • Hamza Raji 2 months ago

    Honestly we don’t need Moses again. As at today if Moses is playing regular for Chelsea he wouldn’t care to come back but since that’s not the case he want to come back. Nigeria players mentality is very bad, the moment they make it, national team become something they treat anyhow, unlike their European counterpart that do everything they can to continue represent their nation. Right now we have lots of players in the team giving 100% and some on the sideline. so I say NO to Moses.

    This issue of the return of Victor Moses will soon become a major distraction to the SE.

    We have not done badly in his abscence. In fact, our game has improved!

    Why not leave the guy alone? He has lost his motivation for the national team. Wish him well, organize a testimonial for him, give him a legends award and move on!

  • It is so sad how people are quick to condemn our players. This was the same Victor Moses that chose to represent Nigeria despite losing his parents during religious riot in Nigeria when he was a child.Having represented England at youth level, he still decided to play for Nigeria and always gave his best whenever he’s on the pitch. He is Nigeria highest goal scorer for 2018 world cup qualifiers. At the world cup, he had a goal and assist. He remain one of the best Nigeria players in the last 7yrs that has ever won any major tournament with the super eagles( winning 2013 nation cup). I am putting this to the fans, few of us will still go ahead to represent Nigeria with the situation that surrounds the demise of his parents. For me, Victor you are a true patriot, whether you come back from retirement or not!

      Point of Correction….Moses did not loose his parents to religious riots in nigeria.. That Story was nothing but a hoax but unfortunately went viral. His father John egharevba an ex-insurance of benin player is still very much alive. One of his siblings played alongside mikel and ogbuke at the 2003 u17 world cup in finland
