VICTOR Moses, Nigerian football player who plies his trade with Chelsea football club, has been named the English Premier League African Player of the Month of November by organisers New African Soccer, AfricanFootball.com reports.
Along the way, the Super Eagles star defeated Kenya’s Victor Wanyama of Tottenham and Victor Anichebe, a fellow Nigerian who plays for Sunderland, to win a second straight award in two consecutive months.
Since the beginning of the season, Moses has been flourishing in a new right wing-back role under Antonio Conte, Chelsea manager, and has been instrumental in his team being top of the Premier League.
New African Soccer in a statement, congratulated the Nigeria winger but also mentioned the competitiveness of the November award, especially in the votes.
‘Victor Wanyama, also a one-time winner of the award, put up a strong showing and this was rightly justified, considering his role in Tottenham Hotspur’s early surge which made them the last to be beaten in the League. His move from Southampton was a positive one,” Tunde Adelakun, CEO of New African Soccer said.
