I’ve done a few interviews over the years, managers, chairman and players, but this evening broke new ground for me.
It’s the first time I’ve spoken to an ex-player with a reputation that wasn’t all positive. It’s the first time I’ve spoken to someone who was so candid, about the good and the bad, that I came away feeling that we’d truly done enough to correct people’s opinions. Moses Swaibu does have a past, he hasn’t always been a model professional and yet in just under an hour of video interview, he presented himself in such a way it is hard not to change your opinion of him.
Whether it was the infamous chicken incident, the match-fixing or even revealing other issues he had during the pre-season before, he gave a really insightful and honest account of his time at Lincoln City. If you didn’t watch it, it really is a recommended watch even if I have to say that as the presenter. He discusses players, managers and paints a very different picture of some figures to what you might expect.
Whatever you think, give him your time and watch the video below. You won’t regret it.
