Victor Moses Not On Good Terms With One Experienced Super Eagles Player Before Announcing RetirementPublished: September 13, 2018
Allnigeriasoccer.com understands that Chelsea winger Victor Moses was not on good terms with an experienced Super Eagles player, Elderson Echiejile, before he called time on his international career last month.
The official word from the former England U17 star is that he took the decision to quit the Nigeria National Team so he could spend time with his family and focus on his career with Chelsea, but there is more to it than that.
Moses did not have a cordial relationship with Elderson Echiejile simply because a member of his family in Benin City advised him to be wary of the former Monaco defender.
The two players were supposed to be good friends as they are both products of BJ Foundation and skippered the Benin City based academy at youth tournaments.
Before relocating to London, Moses was the captain of BJ Foundation's U13 team and Echiejile skippered the U16s.
Apart from having a frosty relationship with Echiejile, Moses had complained that he was not comfortable fraternizing with some Super Eagles players because they are involved in fetish practices.
Moses scored 12 goals in 37 appearances for the Super Eagles and was part of the Nigeria squad that won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
