Nigeria Football Federation president Amaju Pinnick is eager to convince Victor Moses to come out of international retirement. 

The 28-year-old hung up his international boots in August of last year to focus on his club career, but Pinnick is hoping to change the Chelsea utility player’s mind. 

“I have arranged to meet him and his agent in England. I believe the way Moses left the national team was unexpected and sudden,” Pinnick said as quoted by BBC Sport. 

“I want to speak to him and make him understand how important it is to return. 

“I’d love for us to get him back. We’ll see what will happen.”

He continued: “Moses comes with a lot of experience and has won the Nations Cup by playing an important role. 

“We have a talented young squad but he can make significant contribution as an experience player.

“It will be his decision at the end of the day, but even if he has to leave – then we have to honour him like England did with Wayne Rooney.

“I still believe he can change his mind and continue to wear the national colours with pride, that is what I will be hoping for when we meet.”

Moses has struggled for game time this season and has featured for the Blues on a mere six occasions across all competitions. 

The former England youth international has scored 12 goals in 38 appearances for the Super Eagles, and was part of the squad that won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa. (African Football)
