Victor Moses remembers with difficulties his infancy and the tragic death of his parents. The now Chelsea player, wanted by Barcelona, indicated that his escape to England “was a long journey, really tough. What I wanted was to arrive, to work hard and to become a professional footballer.”
He adds that “now I can thank God for everything that has happened. My dream has become a reality and if I continue in the same way I think I can achieve my dream one day of playing for Barcelona.” They were quotes recorded a few years ago which now take on more significance.
Moses says that “when I was a kid I didn’t have shoes, but that didn’t stop us playing football.” The winger, who Barça see as a right-back, who sought asylum in England has since returned to Nigeria to represent his country.
