Sissoko Raves About ‘Talented Player’ Simon

Nantes midfielder Moussa Sissoko has praised his teammate Moses Simon for his dribbling skills.

Sissoko joined French Ligue 1 team Nantes this summer transfer window from Watford in a deal worth €2million.

In an interview with the Ligue 1 website Sissoko was impressed by his new teammates lauding Simon’s dribbling abilities.

“This is a very good squad!,” Sissoko said.

“Ludovic Blas is a very big player, very strong technically ,Marcus Coco too and,as I said before, Pedro Chirivella has a good technical ability .

“There is also Alban Lafont in goals ,who is in my opinion, close to the doors of the French team.

“I almost forgot him because he started later than everyone else, but Moses Simon is amazing,in one on ones he’s unstoppable.”

Simon scored six goals and recorded eight assists in 30 French Ligue 1 games last season.

He has scored seven goals for the Super Eagles of Nigeria in 53 appearances.

Nantes finished ninth in the French Ligue 1 last season with 55 points from 38 games.

Nantes won the French Cup last season and will face Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday the 31st of July in the Trophee des Champions.

  • Simon Moses’ ability is not in doubt. He’s got fantastic footwork, quick feet and decent shooting power. If only he can improve on his decision making and deliveries in the final third and avoid unnecessary ball holding, his impact in the game will be massive.
    In the national team, there are quite a number of options on the wings with the likes of Chukwueze, Aribo, Iwuala Anayo, Ejuke and perhaps Watford’s forward Dennis. It’s the desire of soccer fans that the wingers are able to provide as much support for goals for the front men.

      Well said Brotherman. You are one of the few people who make me talk about Nigeria’s football these days. Moses Simon is the best winger. I and I believe in his talent.
      Heaven bless Moses Simon and all deserving Super Eagles players.
