Antonio Conte: “I’m happy to have this type of player”


Antonio Conte has revealed he didn’t think Victor Moses could cut it defensively when he first arrived at Chelsea.

Moses has come under fire for his on and off form in the past, however, Despite his concerns over Moses’ defensive abilities Conte claims he decided very quickly that the 26-year-old had the quality to be a Chelsea player.

‘I realised quickly that Victor could stay with us. I spoke with him during pre-season, when we stayed in America, and told him he will stay with us. I’m happy to have this type of player. I knew him before, but to see him in person is very important to judge a player. He deserved to stay with us this season but also now he is deserving to play.

‘Victor was very, very happy when I told him he would stay. He said to me “I am ready to stay here, to fight for the club, I need to have my chance to show that I deserve to play with Chelsea”. It happened and we are very happy for this because he’s showing he’s a good player.’
