Mourinho backing for Moses
24 July 2015, 11:49
Nairobi - Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho insists out-of-favour winger Victor Moses is very much in his plans for next season.
Moses, who joined the Blues from Wigan in 2012, played a bit- part
role in his debut season at Stamford Bridge before two underwhelming
loan spells at Liverpool and Stoke City.
Moses was widely expected to leave the West London club this
off-season, but Mourinho has surprisingly given his full backing to the
Nigeria international and expects him to be a prominent figure this
"Victor is strong, he is experienced," he told reporters after the
club's 4-2 pre-season defeat to New York Red Bulls. "He has got good
competition but he is an experienced guy.
"He is fast, he is aggressive. He needs to learn to play with us
obviously but I am happy with his week and his 45 minutes. Victor has
had an evolution in the past couple of years."
