Chelsea legend  Langley Feels Sorry For Moses Over Bench Role

Chelsea Legend Tommy Langley feels sorry for Victor Moses who has failed to secure game time under new manager Maurizio Sarri.

The former Nigeria international featured prominently under former boss Antonio Conte, flourishing in the right wing-back position.

However, since the arrival of Sarri, the 27-year-old has been reduced to a bit-part role, making only two Premier League appearances for the side this season with his boss preferring Cesar Azpilicueta in the right-back position while Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro are ahead of him on the wings.

“I feel sorry for Victor Moses”, Langley said on Chelsea TV.

“He had a fantastic time two years ago and it culminates on him not even being on the bench.

“So he is someone who will want to play football matches.

“He’s not happy sitting on his backside in the stand watching the game.”

There are speculations Moses might leave the Stamford Bridge outfit during the January transfer window with his former club Crystal Palace the likely destination.

However, when Chelsea take on Leicester City on Saturday, he will be hoping to play a part in the encounter.

    Moses will not be allowed to play any match until he renounce his keeping away from playing for his Country, NIGERIA. He knows it. If Victor continues to not want to play for Nigeria, so he will continue to wallow in obscurity.

    • How did you work that one out?

    • Ive always wonders about this view point Edoman. Victor is not playing for Chelsea because the new manager wants to play a different style and Victor has quite a few players ahead of him .

      We all want to see our best players playing regularly, but it’ll not happen with Chelsea as the managers playing philosophy is a different one to what was there last season.

      A return to his roots at Crystal Palace is his best options where he can play on the right behind (and with) Andros Townsend. CP are currently looking at their attacking options and I think he could fit right in there 

  • Sorry, analytically, I just fail to see the correlation between : 1) Victor Moses’ retirement from international football and 2) his inability to get into the Chelsea squad due to his wingback role been made redundant following the departure of his previous coach.

    If I am missing something, please, someone enlighten me.

    I can understand to an extend what Edoman posted in relation to Moses early retirement.
    In my understanding he meant early retirement could bring bad fortunes ill-luck,bad effects and can be regrettable.
    Playing for your national teams brings to you favourable outcomes,excellency, pedigree,goodwill of the fans.Well wishes of the beloved fans to the players and more rub on this players to excel but when you put the club ahead of this millions of fans from the national teams all the spiritual benefits disappear and most if not all would prefer to see your downfall rather than your rise so it also affects this players in a negative way.
    However,this is debatable but if you look closely especially players who does the runner like Moses or those who refuse blatantly to honour national team invitation they fizzle out and become quiet and redundant with different misfortunes plaguing there rather previous stardom.
    I hope I have been of help with my analysis.Thank you.

  • If you set out to confuse me GT, you couldn’t have done a better a better job.

    I still fail to see any Measurable correlation between 1) retiring early from international football and 2) bad fortune in club football.

    My points:

    All players are susceptible to face rough times at any point in their careers whether they continue in international football or retire early.


    – Ezenwa: number 2 goalkeeper for a big mega football nation like Nigeria : Currently unemployed.

    – Balogun: number one central defender for the Super Eagles: Bench-warmer in club level unless injury to key players.

    – Musa: World cup bound yet – until Rohr’s intervention – relegated to under-23 football in Leicester

    Early retirement:

    Christopher Ohen: chose to ignore the national team but still enjoyed 12 years of club football.

    B. McCarthy (South Africa): retired early but still had a Decent club career.

    And my favourite example: James Milner (England): retired early and it appears to have been the best decision of his career! The guy, in his 30s, is in fantastic shape, playing some of the best football of his life still at the highest level.

    I can go on with examples…..

    This talk about early retirement bringing chaos to the career of a footballer is utter rubbish to me (please find it in you to forgive me for my strong Language; it is just passion, nothing else. I mean no disrespect).

    Moses has retired from international football and I hope he stays retired.

    I love him and wish him every success in his club career.

    That ship has sailed; we move to a new chapter of Kalu, Chukwueze etc whilst praying for the likes of Iheanacho to rediscover the form that made him such a hit as an under-17 international.

      @ deo I’m never into that school of thought rather was giving my opinion based on the controversial posts by my good mate Edoman.I could even be wrong by my understanding of his posts I think he is in a better position to give you a broader insight of his posts if he wants,though I don’t think he owes anyone any explanation.

      • No worries, mate.

        Glad you are not upset with me. Sorry again to you and Edoman for my strong language at times.
