Moyes explains Alesemove

Aji Alese’s departure from the club caused raised eyebrows among many fans who had believed the academy product had a real future at the club.

But with Nayef Aguerd arriving and with three others available the boss decided to give the player an opportunity of moving his career onwards at Sunderland.

And the manager has now made it clear that he believes it was the correct move for a player who wanted to move on to regular first team football.

The manager told reporters: “We felt it was right he wanted to go. It was a good move. As couple of teams came in for him.

It was good for the boy he has been a really good boy. He has worked well and we like him a lot. We thought to give him an opportunity was the best thing as we didn’t see a chance for him to heavily feature in the first team.

  1. Bet you’re regretting that now David

  2. Good luck to Aji who deserved an opportunity and I believe he will prosper. Much as I admire and enjoy David Moyes’ achievements I believe he completely missed out by not using any U23 subs for two seasons. He had great cameo chances to promote Alese, Coventry, Ashby, Perkins, Okoflex and others. I feel sure that Ashby and Alese should have been developed but ultimately the manager has to be right.

  3. Understood that Alese would be seeking 1st team regular football, BUT… why sell him for pennies, when he could have gone out of loan and developed and remained part of the West Ham set up?

  4. Why sell him when Daswon and Ogbnonna not fully fit ?
    Leaving a want away Diop,Zouma and Aguerd.
    Baptiste no where near ready.
    Crazy decision by Moyes again
