 'He Took To It Very Well' - Ex-Chelsea Captain Cahill Reveals One Key Attribute Of Victor Moses
Victor Moses endeared himself to former Chelsea captain Gary Cahill during Antonio Conte's spell in charge of the London club.

The Italian manager employed a new defensive formation in Chelsea's last title-winning season, with the former Nigeria international converted to a right wing-back and brought into the starting lineup.

Cahill was impressed with Moses' transition from an attack-minded player to a wing-back, and highlighted that his key attribute was launching attacks from his fullback position.

"It was just a befitting role for him; it fit his game perfectly. He was a very fit lad and had the stamina to get up and down," Cahill told Palace's Matchday Programme.

"I was on the left-hand side of the three, and he would’ve had Azpi [César Azpilicueta] behind him – a great player to have behind you, dictating to you.

"His game didn’t change much really. Defensively he could do a job but his attribute was carrying the ball forward.

"It was just the perfect role for him and he took to it very, very well."

Moses fell out of favour after Conte was shown the exit door before the start of the 2018-2019 season and has been farmed out on loan to three different clubs Fenerbahce, Inter Milan and Spartak Moscow.
