Remi Mark Moses (born 14 November 1960 in Miles Platting, Manchester) is a former English football player whose main position was as a defensive midfielder.

In 1981, Moses was transferred from West Bromwich Albion to Manchester United for £500,000. He had been a crucial player in an Albion side that had qualified for the UEFA Cup three times in four seasons with top-four finishes.

He made his United debut on 12 September 1981 against Swansea City. He scored his first goal for United in the same season, and in doing so became the first black player to score for the club.

Moses was a key midfielder for United during the 1980s, but suffered a succession of serious injuries. He missed the FA Cup final triumphs of 1983 due to suspension and 1985 due to injury, and played his last game for the club in 1988. Injuries had gradually forced him out of the team and he finally announced his retirement from playing in the 1988 89 season when aged only 28.

In 2000, Moses was working buying and selling property in Alkrington, Greater Manchester, and in his spare time, coaching the Manchester Warriors U-20 inline skating side, which had just won the GB Inline Hockey League and 'every other trophy going'.
