Chelsea’s Moses relishing new position under Conte


The 25-year-old looks to finally have established himself in Chelsea’s first-team squad after numerous loan spells

Chelsea winger turned wing-back Victor Moses admits he is relishing his new role under Antonio Conte and is glad to finally have found his place in the Blues team.

The 25-year-old has spent the past three seasons out on loan in search of regular first-team football, with Liverpool, Stoke and West Ham. And the Nigeria international’s future was uncertain when Conte arrived in the summer.

However, it seems the former Juventus and Italy boss has realised Moses’ talents and is ready to make him a key player in the Blues’ bid to return to European football for next season.

“I have not played there before,” Moses told the club’s official website.

“I have just got to listen to what the manager asks me to do in that position, and the way he wants me to do it.

“Every game we play I just want to keep on improving. The more games you play, the more experience you get in that position. I’m really relishing it at the moment and enjoying it.

“It’s very important to understand your team-mates. I have got [Cesar] Azpilicueta there, the spare right-back, who is behind me, and he communicates with me and really helps me out to make sure I am in the right position.

“It’s very good to link up with Pedro or Willian, too. They know when it’s time for me to go or when not to go. We speak to each other and we look at each other’s movement to make sure we are doing the right thing on the pitch.

“Defensively we all work as a unit in training. We want to make sure we don’t get caught sleeping in a game. Every day in training the manager is on top of us to make sure we are solid at the back.

“It’s looking good for us at the moment, but we have to keep our feet firmly on the floor, try and keep the momentum going and hopefully win as many games as we can without conceding goals.”
