Moses Simon was yet again on the winning side as his new team Levante dispatched Real Zaragoza 5-3 on penalties in a friendly game after both teams remained tied at 1-1 at regulation time.
Simon was handed his first start after his impressive display in his first games and the number 7 didn’t disappoint with smart and intelligent work on and off the ball from the right flank, where he operated.
He did make way shortly before the start of the second half as he is still building up his fitness level ahead of the start of the La Liga next weekend, where they will take on Real Betis in their first game.
Signed from Gent for a fee which could potentially rise to €10m, he is expected to play a starring role for modest side Levante, although he has admitted he need to learn the language faster for effective communication with his teammates.
” I’m teaching myself the Spanish language, a bit funny to be honest because I have always love to hear people speak it and now I have to learn it and hopefully speak with my teammates for effective communication on the pitch”, Simon told Owngoalnigeria.com.
