The AITEO/Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) awards held in Lagos on Monday with Victor Moses emerging the 2018 Player of Year.
Moses edged out Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi and Lobi Stars’ Anthony Okpotu.
DAILY POST reports that in attendance were FIFA President, Gianni Infantino and his CAF counterpart Ahmad Ahmad, Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode and Delta state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa and Francis Peters, the Deputy Managing Director, Aiteo Group.
Others were ex-internationals, Samson Siasia, Christian Chukwu, Wilson Oruma, Femi Opabunmi, Mutiu Adepoju, Segun Odegbami, Daniel Amokachi, Mutiu Adepoju, Uche Okechukwu, Garba Lawal, Austin Okocha, Austine Eguaveon, among others.
Moses enjoyed a remarkable transformation during the 2016-17 season, winning over the doubters and earning his place at Chelsea despite appearing destined for the exit door.
He was introduced into the starting lineup in late 2016 in an unfamiliar wing-back role after Antonio Conte saw in the former Crystal Palace attacker a key solution to a problem position.
