As the English Premier League starts today, Godwin Abigor is appealing to Eagles star, Victor Moses to remain at Wigan rather than move to big spenders, Chelsea.
Moses has been an object of controversy since Chelsea indicated interest in him. Wigan manager had advised him to stay longer at Wigan and develop more before moving to the big clubs. But the excitement of moving to Chelsea has moved Moses more than anything the amount Chelsea have put on the table notwithstanding.
”Moving to Chelsea may kill the game of Victor Moses because he may not get enough playing times to boost his game,” Abigor, the chairman of Nigeria’s Warri Wolves said, adding “Chelsea is a place better known for big players and they don’t have time to develop anybody. And with the big players Moses may find himself struggling outside the regular team.”
Abigor wants Moses to spend about one or two more years at Wigan to mature into a full blown star before a move to a big club.
”When he does so he will even attract more transfer money than what Chelsea is offering now and the whole package will be good enough to even inspire him and boost his confidence on the field.
“Going for about eight million pounds will make him one of the small or lowly rated players in Chelsea and this could even have a psychological effect on him because he may be thinking small about himself.”
On the London Olympics, Abigor said Team Nigeria’s performance was an “embarrassment to the whole country.” He said it was good that a sports summit to proffer solutions to Nigeria’s problems in sports would be held.
