Former Russian attacking midfielder Andrey Arshavin says Victor Moses’ arrival has strengthened Spartak Moscow and expects him to help the club this season.

Moses scored his first goal in Russian football as Spartak Moscow thrashed their hosts Krasnodar 3 – 0 last weekend.

The former Nigerian international was also involved in the Moscow derby against CSKA eight days ago.

Speaking on the impact of Moses on Spartak Moscow since his arrival, Arshavin who also played for the club during his days, said Moses is a strong character for the Russian championship and has improved the team.


“I think it was clear that this is a strong footballer for our championship. Moses has strengthened the necessary position for Spartak.” Andrey Arshavin said

“I remember how he played for Wigan against us. He played more with the ball. Now – more at a distance. Spent a lot of time at Inter and Chelsea.” he said.

Moses signed for Spartak Moscow on loan from English Premier League giants Chelsea.
