Spartak Moscow have described Victor Moses as “one of the best, if not the best” in his position in the Russian Premier League while dismissing reports he will leave this summer.
The 31-year-old former Nigeria international has been in great form for the Russian outfit in this new campaign as he has managed to score two goals in two matches in the Russian top-flight.
With FIFA issuing a new rule allowing Russian-based foreign footballers to suspend their contracts owing to the war with Ukraine, reports have linked the former Chelsea player with a move away from the club.
However, the club’s press chief Dmitry Zelenov has rubbished those claims.
Zelenov told Championat as quoted by Punch:
You are operating on rumours. We saw what shape Moses got, and how great he plays. We now want to talk about Moses in a football way. Moses is one of the best, if not the best, in his position in the RPL.
We are glad that there is such a player in Spartak. How long will he play for Spartak? I have talked about this many times and I will say it again: the current situation, the situation does not give us a guarantee for any player, except for the Russians.
Spartak, who are second on the table with seven points from three matches, will next face Ural at Central Stadium of Yekaterinburg on Saturday.
