Keshi tears into Moses



Head coach of the Nigeria national team, Stephen Keshi tore into Chelsea forward, Victor Moses following his decision to retaliate after a poor tackle from Cape Verde captain, Nando in Wednesday’s friendly game between both countries in Faro, Portugal.

The 21-year-old astonishingly kicked out at the Cape Verde captain following a bad tackle from the Tubarões Azuis’ most capped player.

Moses was only shown a yellow card for the actions with experts arguing that he was lucky not to have been issues with the marching orders for the display of petulance.

‘The big boss’ was not impressed with the forward’s antics and slammed him at the break in the Nigeria changing.

“Keshi was hopping mad at that action and gave Moses what could be likened to the famous Sir Alex Ferguson’s hair dryer treatment for his (Moses’) actions,” spokesman of the Super Eagles, Ben Alaiya told supersport.com after the game.

Keshi also admonished the team on the issue of discipline after the game.

Five Nigerian players, Efe Ambrose, Elderson Echiejile, Joseph Yobo, Ahmed Musa and Victor Moses were booked in the game.
