Spartak Moscow manager Domenico Tedesco has expressed his disappointment in former Nigerian international Victor Moses performance at the club.
Moses joined the Russian side on a season-long loan from Chelsea in October, making it his sixth loan deal after spending time at Liverpool, Inter Milan, West Ham, Stoke City and Fenerbache.
He played a full 90 minutes in Spartak’s 1-1 draw against Dinamo Moscow but his performance did not impress Tedesco.
“Victor Moses is not yet at the level that I want to see him. We will need time to get the players back to the required level. This applies not only to Victor but also to the others.
“Yes, I am satisfied with [Aleksandr] Kokorin’s performance. We did not have the opportunity to involve [Aleksandr] Sobolev.
“Today we saw the strengths of Alexandr. But Kokorin, like Moses, did not pass the winter training camp, and we need to get them back in shape.”
However, Tedesco has casted doubts about making the Chelsea winger’s stay at the Russian outfit permanent.
According to Sport Express, Spartak have halted their plans to sign the 29-year-old at the end of the season, as revealed by general director Shamil Gazizov who spoke to Nobel Arustamyan on his YouTube channel.
“No, the loan cost €300,000 (£268,000) and the option to buy will be €5million (£4.47million). It is also possible not to buy Moses. But when Victor and I talked, his main desire was to find a club.”
Meanwhile, Moses is still contracted to Chelsea until the summer of 2022 but they are hoping to cash in on him early to avoid allowing him to leave on a free transfer.
