Nigeria Football Federation President Amaju Pinnick may not be in the good books of many but Victor Moses says he is like a father to him.

Moses had glowing words for the Pinnick-led NFF, admitting that the NFF boss has contributed immensely to his success for club and country.

“Mr. Pinnick is like a father to me. He calls me almost every day, advising and encouraging me in my game and life generally. The NFF he heads has done so well and done so much for the team.

“We are going to Russia to do the NFF and Nigeria proud. They have taken care of several areas that used to be points of distraction and worry for the team. Now, we have settled minds and can fully focus on the game on the pitch.”

Moses is expected to play a key role in this weekend’s England friendly having missed out on last Monday’s Congo DR friendly.
