Former Chelsea and Wigan defender Mario Melchiot is delighted to see his ex-teammate at Wigan Victor Moses thrive at Stamford Bridge this season, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Moses has become an integral part of the Chelsea squad this season, churning out impressive performances for Antonio Conte’s side while playing as a wing-back, and Melchiot is impressed with the Nigerian international.
Melchiot wrote on his personal website: "Victor Moses might be the big headline of them all.
"I played with Victor when he was at Wigan. Martinez was very impressed by his talent and we once talked about how we couldn't believe no big club could see it.
"I do have to say he sometimes had to learn to be more focused, not just in the games but in training.
"He was only 20 years old back then, and I think that's something every young star has to deal with when they break through. You have to learn to separate the jokes from work because when you hit the pitch, whether in a game or training, it means business.
"It didn't take long before Chelsea saw Victor's qualities and snapped him up. Then there was a long loan out process at a number of clubs until Conte came and changed the system.
"He put Victor in a role where he had way more responsibility than he was used to. In the [Manchester] United game I saw Victor in his own box more then I've seen him ever in a game."
