With the appointment of Antonio Conte as the new Chelsea boss, Victor Moses must probably have thought it’ll be another loan spell for him again. But it wasn’t to be so; the Italian recognised his good qualities and told him that he wouldn’t be leaving but fight for his shirt.
Conte also revealed that Moses was very happy to stay.
The Chelsea manager said: “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.”
