Until four months ago, Victor Moses was the unwanted player in the Chelsea squad, with successive managers sending him out on loan rather than giving him the opportunity to prove his worth at the Bridge. But all that has changed with the arrival of Antonio Conte, who has ‘recreated’ the former Wigan man into a formidable asset to the club’s chase for the English Premiership title this term.

Moses joined Chelsea from Wigan in 2012 after a very productive season, but he spent much of that time on loan to other clubs, including Stoke, Liverpool and West Ham. And the Super Eagles’ forward yesterday admitted that he found his situation frustrating.

Speaking to Sport Magazine, Moses, who is now one of the first names in Conte’s matchday list, said of his loan days, “I’ve been a little bit frustrated, I’m not going to lie.

“You spend about a month-plus in the hotel before you find your own place to stay – stuff there kind of plays in your head, and obviously the kids have to go to another place, go to school.

“I’ve not actually had time to relax. When the season finishes, you have to move back to London again, and those kind of things play in a footballer’s head.”

Moses, who won the EPL Fans’ player of the month award for November, has been touted as one of the candidates for the player of the year award.

His profile has risen so suddenly that European giants, Barcelona, have shown interest in taking him to Nou Camp.

But the Nigerian has remained firmly determined to make the best use of his new lease of life in Chelsea.

He attributes his success in his new role as a wingback to help from some of his team mates, especially Cesar Aspilicueta.

According to Moses, “He understands it more than I do, so he’s constantly talking to me, making sure that I’m in the right place and that really helps me.”(
