MOSES TIPPED FOR THE TOP

Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez has said that international football will be a huge boost for Wigan athletic striker Victor Moses.

Wigan athletic signed the teenager from Crystal Palace a few seasons ago, but he is yet to become an established star in the Premier league.

He is often known for missing even the easiest of chances, which have resulted in the lack of interest from big clubs.

However, Wigan manager Roberto Martinez is of the opinion that playing international football for Nigeria would help Victor Moses become a much better player in the future. Victor Moses recently made his debut for the Nigerian national team, as he qualifies for the Nigerian national team by virtue of birth.

Previously, Victor Moses has been involved at the England under 21 level, but has found chances limited of late. In order to get more international experience, Victor Moss's has decided to choose his country of birth over his country of residence. Even though Victor Moses was involved in the match for only about 28 min, Roberto Martinez believes that simply the prospect of playing international football will make the striker a much better player. The 21-year-old recently scored his first goal for Wigan this season.

"For a long time I knew it was a big decision for him and now he can concentrate on what he has to do rather than what he would like or was dreaming to do. It doesn't matter who you are, if you have issues and you don't know where you are it does affect your career. Now he has been able to make that decision where to play his international career and that is important as it has settled him as a human being," said the Latics boss. Wigan are currently bottom of the Premier league table.
