‘Liverpool’s Victor Moses won’t want to return to Chelsea’
Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge is confident Victor Moses won't want to return to Chelsea after a season on loan at the Reds
John Aldridge believes Liverpool forward Victor Moses won’t want to return to Chelsea after spending a season on loan at Anfield.
The Nigeria international sealed a temporary switch to the Merseyside outfit on Monday after being deemed surplus to requirements at the Blues following a flurry of new arrivals.
Moses scored 10 goals in 43 appearances in all competitions during his first season at Chelsea, and the £9m-rated front-man will link up with former Blues team-mate Daniel Sturridge at the Reds.
And former Liverpool striker Aldridge fully expects Moses to prove a real hit at the 18-time English champions.
“The manager had been looking for another attacking threat from out wide and I think the loan signing of Victor Moses will prove to be very shrewd,” Aldridge wrote in his Liverpool Echo column.
“Moses is quick and skilful. His scoring record at Chelsea last season – 10 goals in 43 appearances – was decent considering he didn’t start that often.
“It’s a similar scenario to when we signed Daniel Sturridge. Moses has come to Anfield with a point to prove after not getting game-time at Stamford Bridge.
“Moses has actually gone out on loan to a bigger club which doesn’t happen often in football.
“I’m sure sitting and watching Liverpool beat Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday will have put fire in his belly.
“The Nigeria international will be relishing the prospect of pulling on the shirt and playing in that kind of atmosphere.
“Moses will fit in well with the way we play and I don’t think he will want to go back to Chelsea next summer.”
