On-loan Chelsea attacker, Victor Moses appears to be a man after his national team manager’s heart.
The 24-year-old who joined West Ham in a transfer deadline day loan move from Chelsea featured in his first match for the Hammers on Monday night. He played a key part in West Ham’s 2-0 victory over Newcastle. It was the Nigerian’s shot that clattered off the crossbar for Dimitri Payet’s second goal of the game.
Speaking after the game, Victor Moses expressed delight at his West Ham debut.
“I thought all the lads did really well out there.
“We knew what to expect, the manager said ‘Go out and express yourself, make sure you enjoy the game’.
“I thought we worked hard together as a team, we deserved the game and we dominated really. We created a lot of chances really,” he said.
He also sent out a tweet expressing his delight at the team’s performance:
Great to make my debut for West Ham last night! The team were brilliant now let's move on to the next game ??
