Moses is exceptional---Stoke boss

Nigerian international Victor Moses has been described as an exceptional player in Stoke City.
Manager Mark Hughes showered Moses with encomiums following his team's 1-0 victory over Newcastle United on Monday night in an English Premier League (EPL) game.
Moses, who is on loan from Chelsea, was instrumental in Peter Crouch's 15th minute goal off a header having provided the cross.
"Moses has been exceptional. He's a man on a mission, I would suggest. He hasn't had a lot of football in the last two seasons and he just wants to play.
"Every time he gets into those wide positions you sense something is going to happen." Hughes told journalists.
Team-mate and the match winner Crouch also hailed the heroics of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) winner to the Potters’ victory over the Magpies..
"Victor's been our main threat so far this year, and he’s going to get quality balls into the box. It was a great delivery and I'm pleased with the goal," the former Liverpool forward told Sky Sports
Meanwhile, Moses has expressed surprise over the decision not to award a penalty kick in his team's favour after he was wrestled in the box by Yoan Gouffran in the first half.
"I'm surprised I didn’t get a penalty, but the referee didn’t give it - that’s football. Today was a major step up and hopefully we can start winning games as much as possible.
"It was a crucial game for us and the big man here got the goal, so we’re very pleased," said the former Crystal Palace player.
Moses, a former Wigan player after missing the first two 2015 AFCON qualifiers against Congo and South Africa has been recalled for the home and away clash with Sudan in November.
