Moses aims to help Spartak Moscow win Premier League after Champions League qualification

Ex-Nigeria international set to continue career in Russia after successful loan

Victor Moses has revealed that his ambition is to win the Russian Premier League with Spartak Moscow in the 2021-22 season.

The Chelsea player helped the popular side to finish second in Russia’s top flight last season, giving them a chance to play in the UEFA Champions League next season.

Moses’ late equalizer in Spartak Moscow’s 2-2 draw against Akhmat Grozny in the season finale in May, sealed the team’s second place finish.

His exploits earned him the club’s Player of the Month award in May and he vowed to keep doing his best in Rui Vitoria’s squad after receiving his fan award on Sunday.

“Thank you. I really appreciate that. I will do my best to help the team, especially trying to achieve more this season than we did last year,” Moses told a video on the club’s YouTube channel.

“The most important thing is to enjoy football and I will definitely do that this year and help the team win the championship.”

Moses is expected to automatically move from Chelsea to Otkritie Arena after helping them qualify for elite European competition.

Goal understands that Spartak Moscow will pay Chelsea £ 4million to complete the permanent change.

The 30-year-old, who contributed four goals and two assists in 19 league appearances last season, recalled the four-goal thriller at Grozny as they battled for a point after conceding two early goals.

“I scored the last goal in May, it was the last game of the season,” he continued. “I was obviously very happy to score the goal, but the most important thing is the hard work of the team, and I think we did very well, two less goals and one comeback.

“Quincy with the goal in the second half and I who scored the last goal to make it 2-2 also to qualify us for the Champions League, which was very good for us.”
