Former Super Eagles captain Austin Okocha has expressed worry over the injury suffered by Nigerian forward Victor Moses claiming that his club in Russia have really missed him.

The 32-year-old suffered an Achilles tendon injury against Ural in August 2022, and has not played for the Russian giants ever since then.

According to the report on Complete Sports, Okocha claimed that that Moses will help his team when he returns from injury.

Statement made by Okocha

“Victor is a great football player who played at a high level at Chelsea and is now showing his worth at Spartak.
“I am sure that when Moses recovers from the injury and returns to the squad, he will help Spartak become the champion.”

Sports Brief spoke with Nigerian coach Folabi Ojekunle on the injury of Moses, and he wished the player quick recovery.

Folabi Ojekunle's reaction

''I can only pray and hope that the injury would not end his career considering his age as I wish him quick recovery because Moses is a fine player.''

Okocha believes PSG can win UCL

Earlier, Sports Brief reported how former Super Eagles captain, Jay-Jay Okocha stated emphatically that French side, Paris Saint-Germain have quality players to win the Champions League title.

In recent years, PSG have made numerous attempts to become the champions of Europe, but their campaigns have all fallen apart in some way.

Their dominance in France cannot be over-emphasised but translating that success to the continental stage has proven a major challenge.

Okocha is not a stranger to the PSG dressing room, having played for the club between 1998 and 2002 before making a move to the Premier League with Bolton Wanderers.
