How Important Is Victor Moses To Chelsea? Conte Explains After Victory Over Leicester City


Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has hailed Victor Mosesfollowing his impressive display against Leicester City on Saturday evening.


The winger was on target as the Blues breezed past Claudio Ranieri’s men at the Stamford Bridge to climb fifth on the English topflight log.

And his boss has heaped plaudits on him for paying attention to defensive duties while remaining a good source for attack.

“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 Chelsea website.

“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.”
