Spartak Moscow of Russia winger, Victor Moses hagained an iota of support from his Russia Premier League club’s coach, Domenio Tedesco, who described as ‘controversial’ the red card that was shown the former Super Eagles star during his side’s 2-0 loss to Dinamo Moscow.
Moses, who is currently playing on loan from Chelsea of England, was first booked in the 15th minute of Saturday’s Moscow Derby, after he was adjudged to have handled the ball but television replays suggest that the ball touched his shoulder.
Megasportsarena.com reports that, nine minutes from time, Moses received his marching orders for a second bookable offense, the wing-back fouled Dinamo Moscow winger, Daniil Lesovoy and was yellow carded for stopping a potential counter-attacking opportunity.
Dinamo, who featured another former Super Eagles attacker, Sylvester Emeka Igbonu as a substitute two minutes after Moses was sent off, advanced to the next round of the FA Cup with goals from Daniil Fomin and Konstantin Tyukavin in the 16th and 70th minutes, but Tedesco lamented that his player’s dismissal decided the game’s outcome.
Tedesco said: “We started well, had chances, but then the second conceded goal, Moses’ removal – and the outcome was, in fact, decided.”
