Chelsea loanee Victor Moses opened his goalscoring account for Fenerbahce as they claimed a 2-0 win over Göztepe on game week 20 in the Turkish Super Lig on Friday evening. The former Chelsea player, Moses, replaced Swansea City loanee Andre Ayew, scorer of the first goal, in the 64th minute and sealed the win nine minutes later with his first strike in Turkish football. Fenerbahçe had won only once in seven league games and flirting with relegation before the arrival of Moses, who is looking to reignite his career after being deemed surplus to requirement at Chelsea.
Fenerbahce got off to a great start at the ülker Stadyumu Fenerbahce Sukru Saracoglu Spor Kompleksi in Istanbul with Ayew’s tap in from close range giving them the lead after six minutes. With seventeen minutes remaining, Moses finished off a move he started near the center circle with a smart finish inside the box to give Fenerbahce a two-goal advantage. The wing wizard advanced with the ball just inside the opposition’s half, laid it off for Jailson who returned the favour, picking out the galloping Moses in the six-yard box to finish off the move he started.
After the goal scored by the experienced Premier League campaigner, most of Moses’s teammates celebrated with him and the fans at the stadium screamed his name. The former Wigan player only played twice for the London club since the arrival of coach Mauricio Sarri, and the 28-year-old forward had to join the former Turkish League champions on an 18- month loan deal late in the January transfer window. Following their fifth win of the season, Fenerbahce are provisionally 12th in the table with 23 points.
Victor Moses abruptly retired from the Super Eagles to focus on his club career but it is hoped that a return to regular club football could make him return to the national team.
Do you think Gernot Rohr should recall Victor Moses back into the Super Eagles fold or They don’t need him in the team any longer?
