"It is a pity that he has an injury, but I want to wish him only the very best," Okocha continued to wax lyrical about his compatriot.

Moses is making good progress in his recovery from the injury that required surgery and was named in Spartak Moscow's squad for a training camp in Abu Dhabi ahead of the resumption of the Russia Premier League.

The Kaduna-born winger played 38 games for Nigeria between 2012 and 2018 when he retired from international football and the 2013 AFCON title was the highlight of his Super Eagles career.
