Chelsea Boss Hails Potential Of New Wing-Back Victor MosesChelsea boss Antonio Conte was full of praise for Nigeria winger Victor Moses following his strike in his team’s 3-0 rout of Leicester City in the Premier League.

Having enjoyed loan spells at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham, the Italian admitted that he resisted the idea of farming him out on loan after watching him during preparations for the 2016-2017 campaign.

“When I arrived at Chelsea I told the club I wanted to see Victor in pre-season because I knew him very well and I knew about his great potential, ” Conte told

“He played well as a winger when we were playing with a 4-2-4. He’s a very good player, now he’s playing as a wing-back and it’s fantastic because he pays great attention in defence and can go one against one in attack.

“Alonso always played this role but Moses is a winger. His education is fantastic. I’m pleased for him. If someone shows they deserve to play I have no problem, I don’t care about the surname.”

This season, Moses has featured 9 times for the London club in all competitions, missing only the 3-0 loss to Arsenal on September 24 after failing to come off the bench.
