The Nigerian arrived after a season-long loan in West Ham Football Club. Though he made his own impact with the games he played- he scored a few screamers. It should be a forgotten talk that Victor Moses was once sent on loan to seaside Merseyside where he played for Liverpool.
People that watched him feature for Liverpool would bear me witness that he flopped. He shouldn’t be soaked with the bucket of blame completely. The management of Liverpool had a hand in Victor’s poor
A new season and a new Coach meant a lot for Victor Moses because Antonio Conte already gave him what he wanted- Games and Confidence. Victor adjusted to Conte’s 3-4-3 formation in a short time and it was only before the man with the braids soared in his career again. Victor’s role as a wing-back meant having a double-role – defending and attacking. Impressively, he performed as the Italian coach found a
position where nobody even envisaged for the Nigerian International.
The turnaround in Moses’ career is quite extraordinary and three different loan spells did not give a clue at a player with a future at Chelsea, and suddenly he became an integral element to the success of
In every sport, there will always be favourites- chosen by fans, pundits and media by means of sentiment or permutation. A visit to the transfer market is a clinic for reinforcement in some positions- at least to our belief. This is not always right as the transfer market is not a guarantee for the title. This usually results in panic buys and these signings end up having a bad season in the long run.
Underdogs will rise up midway through the season. Chelsea started the season with a new manager- Antonio Conte and no major signing except for Batshuayi and N’golo Kante fresh out of winning the league with Leicester. I’m sure at the beginning of the season; nobody would have thought that Chelsea Football Club was going to win the league for a number of reasons. I’m also of surety that they were not even worthy to be called league contenders maybe because of the poor season they had with former coach Jose Mourinho which even led to the Portuguese losing his job and a fall-out with top players
in the club. A lot of pundits would have judged Chelsea’s dormancy during the transfer window. Conte knew what he was doing and did not spend much. He would have even studied the type of players he was going to work with and he was going to succeed. He was going to use his passion on the touchline and his intelligence to get results from his players. Changes were obvious as the training ground became a ground for determination. The backroom staff had a change in attitude to work. This paid off as they were eventually league winners and Victor Moses is a top-tier league champion.
