Moses struggled to displace forwards Eden Hazard, Willain, Pedro and youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi under Maurizio Sarri has revitalised his career in Turkey.
The Nigerian forward who scored his first goal for Fenerbahce in his second outing stated that he is enjoying the supporter from his new team comparing the atmosphere to when playing for Nigeria.
He said, “I feel love here and the fans are really pushing me. Not so different like when I play for Nigeria. I miss playing for Nigeria as making the fans happy is our goal as a team. Same as here with Fenerbahce.”
Since Moses quit the Super Eagles after the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, the team have sealed qualification to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
Super Eagles boss Gernot Rohr has already cooled talks of Moses returning to the set up stating that he will not beg the Fenerbahce player.
