Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY MARCH 8 -

VIC­TOR MOSES has backed Roberto Martinez’s decision to drop him – even though it sparked a mas­sive row with owner Dave Whe­lan.

Whe­lan slammed Martinez’s tac­tics and se­lec­tion af­ter the Lat­ics’ 2-0 home loss to Swansea left them bot­tom of the ta­ble.

He ques­tioned why Moses Mo­hamed Di­ame and Hugo Ro­dal­lega started on the bench.

But Moses has re­vealed he was tired af­ter in­ter­na­tional duty and be­lieves Martinez made the right call.

He said: “It’s never nice when you’re not play­ing, but it’s the man­ager’s decision and I was feel­ing tired.

“I’d done a lot of trav­el­ling. It’s hard to be fully fo­cused on the game, so I un­der­stood the decision.”
