Victor Moses, Chelsea wingback, says he always believed in his ability to play at the highest level, especially for a “big club” like Chelsea.

Moses, who had spent previous years on loan, became a regular under Antonio Conte and has been impressive for most of the season.

The Italian’s conversion of the Nigerian forward to a wingback has proven to be a masterstroke.

The 26-year-old attributes his success to that decision and also said the coach has continuously motivated him to get better as a wingback.


“He (Conte) didn’t say to me: ‘Do you fancy playing wing-back?’ He just put me in there,” Moses said.

“After that he just kept on encouraging me and went through it with me, what the position was all about, mostly in training.

“And constantly he was talking to me in training to make sure I was improving in it, talking me through it. I took that in and I didn’t look back.


“I have always believed in the ability that I have got,” he said, adding that “I have always known that I’ve got the ability to play in a big club like Chelsea.

“I have proved that. We have got a manager here that is willing to give everybody an opportunity. To be honest, I just wanted to play football.

“It was at Hull that it all started. I really enjoyed it and I took everything in.

“I kept watching the video of myself after the Hull game, to make sure I was in the right place, and after that I took it in and kept on improving.”


Moses says his former position as an attacking winger makes it easy for him to predict what attacking players would do.

“It’s a big position. You need a lot of stamina to be able to play there, and it’s a responsibility,” he said.

“I have been learning a lot defensively as well, the manager has been teaching me and I have taken everything in.

“When I play against a winger, because I’m a winger myself, I understand what they are going to do before they try and go past me, so it makes it a lot easier for me. The more games I play the better I get.”


Barring a monumental dip in form, Chelsea is on course to win the 2016/2017 English Premier League.
