London - Winger Victor Moses is excited to reunite with
compatriot Emmanuel Emenike at West Ham after the latter joined the English
club on loan from Fenerbahce.
Moses, who is also on loan from Chelsea will now team up
with Emenike upfront for the remainder of the current English Premier League
“I’ve probably played about 20 games with him in the same
Nigeria team,” Moses began. “Since I’ve been playing for Nigeria he’s been
there and we were together in the team who won the African Nations Cup, where
he was top scorer in the tournament.
Moses revealed that Emenike contacted him to inform of his

“I’m really looking forward to him coming to the Club and I
am going to make sure he feels at home.
“He called me up and told me the club were interested in
him. I told him ‘You should come and play in the Premier League, West Ham are a
family club, everyone here is friendly, we have a good manager here and the
people are lovely. I said to him ‘Come and express yourself and you will do
well’,” Moses said on the club’s website.
