Manager reveals why Victor Moses has been so good for Chelsea
Roberto Martinez heaps praise on Antonio Conte for bringing the best out of Victor Moses at Chelsea
Roberto Martinez has credited Antonio Conte with bringing the best out of Victor Moses at Chelsea this season.
The Nigeria international has been given a new lease of life under the new Chelsea boss at Stamford Bridge this season and has been a regular fixture in the Blues’ starting line-up.
Moses had previously struggled to make an impact at Stamford Bridge and was shipped out on loan to Liverpool, Stoke and West Ham under previous Chelsea managers.
However, he has been given a new burst of energy under Conte and has slotted seamlessly into Chelsea’s 3-4-3 formation.
Moses has scored three goals and made two assists in 23 Premier League appearances so far this season to help Chelsea build a nine-point lead at the top of the table.
And Martinez has heaped praise on Conte for helping to turn Moses’ fortunes around at Stamford Bridge this season.
Speaking on Sky Sports’ Goals on Sunday, Martinez said: “That’s down to Antonio Conte. He’s found what system could suit Victor Moses, a player who I’ve seen play a lot.
“When he runs with the ball, his technical his ability is world class.
“When he gets into the final third his decision-making is not as clean as other players but I think he’s suiting this system.
“Victor Moses has got the stamina to do the job which is very difficuilt to find in a quality player.
“When Victor Moses moved to Chelsea he could grow into the player he’s showing now.
“It’s been a long journey – four or five years – but now it’s coming.”
