Nigerian striker Victor Moses has passed a vote of confidence on his former international teammate Emmanuel Emenike to shine at West Ham.
Both Nigerian stars are on loan with the Hammers.
“I firmly believe he will be good in the Premier League and for West Ham as well. Having a player such as him up front gives you that strength,” said Victor Moses, who combined beautifully with Emenike for Nigeria to win a third AFCON title three years ago.
“He’s always played up front for the Super Eagles and hopefully he will come here and show everyone what he can do.
“His strengths? He’s quick and strong at the same time.
“With the Super Eagles we call him ‘The Big Man’. Once he has the ball he has the strength to go through players and he makes sure he wins his battles.”
Chelsea loanee further told the West Ham official website he encouraged Emenike to take his chance with ’The Hammers’.
“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,” he revealed.
