With Moises Caicedo still to make his debut for Brighton & Hove Albion, there’s not only a big expectation from fans to see him in action, but from people in Ecuador as well.

The midfielder’s move to the Premier League continues to be a big topic in the local media, and sometimes conversations that have nothing to do with him end up giving him a mention.

That’s the case of an interview which Santiago Escobar, who’s the manager of Universidad Católica, gave to Rádio Área Deportiva this week. He spoke about several subjects, and Caicedo’s move to Brighton was one of them.

“Caicedo was the revelation of last year in Ecuadorian football together with José Carabalí, and Moises was greatly enhanced with Miguel Ramírez. And with Professor Alfaro he has also got a place at the national team,” said Escobar (via Studio Futbol).

“He has a lot of personality, knows how to make decisions and his stats are very positive. I think that boy has no ceiling, for his age, Ecuador has Moises Caicedo for a while.”

Following a €5m move from Independiente Del Valle, Moises Caicedo is registered by Brighton for the remainder of the season and currently waits for his chance to make his debut.

He’s signed a four-and-half-year contract with the club, and in recent interviews has been explaining he’s pretty excited with the move, claiming he wants ‘to be a starter as soon as possible’.
