Victor Moses, a professional football player from Nigeria who was born on December 12, 1990, plays as a winger on either flank for the Russian team Spartak Moscow. Throughout his career, he has also occasionally been used as a wing-back. Moses started his career in the Championship with Crystal Palace, but Wigan Athletic noticed him after seeing him play and gave him his Premier League debut in 2010. His performance had increased after two years to the point where Chelsea, the reigning European champion, was interested. He joined them in the summer of 2012.
Despite scoring ten goals in all competitions during his rookie season, he spent his second, third, and fourth seasons on loan, the first two at Stoke City and the last three at West Ham United. For the 2016–17 season, Moses was called up to Chelsea, where he made 34 appearances while Chelsea won the Premier League. Moses had consecutive loan stints at Fenerbahçe, Inter Milan, and Spartak Moscow in the following seasons after failing to make an impression during the previous campaign.
