Super Eagles’ star, Victor Moses said he is working hard in his bid to become the best player in Africa.
The Chelsea right wing-back had been nominated for two prestigious awards, Confederation of African Football’s (CAF) Player of the Year and BBC’s African Player of the Year prizes.
If Moses is named the most outstanding player in Africa by the BBC on December 11, he will follow in the footsteps of ex-Chelsea stars, Michael Essien and Didier Drogba, who won the award in 2006 and 2009 respectively. “Yes, it is amazing. I am pleased with the position I am in today. My manager and teammates helped me and encouraged me,’’ Moses told goal.com.
“It shows how hard I worked last year, but it isn’t about being nominated, but winning the award. “Whatever the outcome is, I know that I have had a great year at the club and with the national team as well.
“I was part of the first African team to qualify for the World Cup as well which was good for us. I am pleased to follow in the former Chelsea players’ footsteps; now I want to take my football to the next level.”
“Every season I want to be the best I can to be Africa’s best player. I will do the best I can.’’
