“Gent did very well in Istanbul. They are going very strong. Gift Orban scored a hat-trick in Istanbul,” Moyes told a press conference.u

“He is a very dangerous player but we saw them work enough and realize that their core has several strong players.

“We don’t know everything about Geent, but we really did our homework. We just have to get to our best level to go one round and keep our perfect record in Europe.”

Orban joined Gent from Norwegian second division club, Staebek in January.

  • Even a coach in far away England knows Orban’s qualities but our own coaches and football administrators based at home knows nothing about him…… That tells you alot about the practices going on in all segments of the Nigerian society……All we need is a New Nigeria and we believe it will come to pass in this our generation.
