By Johnbosco Agbakwuru, Calabar

Super Eagles and  Wigan Athletic of London forward, Victor Moses  has debunked rumours making the rounds that he was on his way to Liverpool, declaring  his intension to remain with the team except the manager decides to let him go.

Speaking in an interview in Calabar, the striker said he was aware of rumours linking him and Wigan manager with Liverpool FC next season but revealed that to the best of his knowledge, he has not been approached by Liverpool or any of the big clubs.

“At the moment I’m still a Wigan player. There’s this speculation of my coach going to Liverpool with me. I have not been so approached. If my manager decides to leave Wigan for Liverpool and wants me along, I’ll decide as I’m looking up to him.

“My leaving Wigan is dependent on if my manager will allow me to leave if I have offers from bigger clubs. For  now no big club has approached me. I have a wonderful relationship with my manager. I respect his opinion a lot. I’m still young and ready to learn”, he stated

The Kaduna State born footballer said he is in the Super Eagles team to contribute his own quota to Nigeria’s qualification for the 2014 Brazilian World Cup and 2013 African Cup of Nations and promised to cooperate with coach Stephen Keshi so that Nigeria could make it to the two competitions.

“I have played one match for Super Eagles. I was invited at one other time but could not come due to injury. It is not true that I was not going to play for Nigeria. I told those handling the team so. It is nice being a Nigerian player. I want to play for my country any time I’m invited. I’m looking forward to Sunday’s match”, he said.
