'It Became Obvious I Was Not In The Manager's Plans'- Moses Explains Why He Left Chelsea In JanuaryPublished: May 23, 2019
Former Super Eagles star Victor Moses says he left Chelsea in the January transfer window because he saw the handwriting on the wall and was aware he was surplus to requirements.
Italian boss Maurizio Sarri , who was hired as Chelsea boss at the start of the 2018-2019 season, sets up his team in a 4-3-3 formation, with two central defenders, a right back and left back and the move saw Moses revert to his original position as a winger.
But the Nigerian found playing opportunities limited at Stamford Bridge as he was behind Eden Hazard, Pedro and Willian in the pecking order of wingers whereas he was the undisputed first choice right wing-back during the two years Antonio Conte was in charge.
Moses said via The Guardian UK : ''It’s tough, as Chelsea’s a very special place for me and I’ve always had a great relationship with the fans but it became very obvious that I was not in the manager’s plans.
''I have achieved great things there but I just needed to play football and that’s why I got the move to Fenerbahce.''
Since Moses's loan move to Fenerbahce, he has played 13 league games, scoring three goals, including the winner vs BB Erzurumspor on Monday.
