Victor Moses Might Have Been Forced Into Retirement - Amiesimaka
Former Nigeria international Adokiye Amiesimaka believes that there is more to Victor Moses decision to retire from the Super Eagles at just 27.
“At 27, Victor Moses should be at the peak of his career. Ronaldo and Messi are in their 30s and are still with their national teams. It means playing for Nigeria was a distraction,” Adokiye said.
He believed at 27, Moses may have been forced to quit because of issues that he did not want to make public.
“There could be more to it than meets the eye. It is worth finding out. He is still young and can still play for Nigeria,” he said.
Adokiye explained that there had to be concrete reasons for a player to retire at such a young age, and went on to explain why he retired from international football at 24.
“I left because of the nonchalant, nasty, shoddy manner football officials treated footballers then.
"I was not a professional football because I was a lawyer, it is just that I was naturally endowed with footballing skill.
"We went to a tour of East and South Africa and I sustained an injury. When we returned it was like ‘to your tents O Israel’ and I was left to treat myself. And I said to myself, what rubbish. And I quit.” he explained.
Do you think there is more to Victor Moses early retirement?
