Chelsea winger Victor Moses has once again fired shots at former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who is now at Manchester United by labeling the current handler of the team Antonio Conte who has given him the chance to flourish at Stamford Bridge the unique one.
Moses was farmed out on loan by Mourinho in the three season, the Manchester United boss spent at Chelsea. Moses reckons Conte has a way of working with players on a one on one basis unlike his former coach.
Many will see his amazing backing for Chelsea boss Conte as a dig at Mourinho, who fell out big time with Blues stars last season before being axed.
Moses said: “He’s very different because he came to the club and showed us it’s about more than football. He cares about the players individually.
“The manager never discussed it with me, so I knew I was going to stay and play here this season.
“He just said to me, ‘You know what, you ARE a good player and I just want you to keep on enjoying your football’.
“He wants to know what we are eating and he always wants us in the gym to prevent us from getting injured.
“He’s a very unique and a different manager from the other managers because he’s passionate and loves the game as well.
“When he talks about the game with you, he knows what to expect, his awareness, knowledge of the modern game and experience make him completely different and unique — in a nice way.”
If you see what happened last season, the players obviously don’t want that to happen this season.
“With the manager as well, it’s a different attitude and mentality.
“You can call it the desire not to fail, as he is helping us to make sure we don’t replicate what happened last season.
“The atmosphere is buzzing because we cannot let our fans, the club, manager and also ourselves down.
“The manager is there to help us and we all want to work hard for him, stay in top shape and approach the games with the hunger and desire it deserves.”
