Moses Earns Mourinho Praise, To Stay At Chelsea

Moses Earns Mourinho Praise, To Stay At Chelsea

By Adeboye Amosu:
Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho, has heaped plaudits on Victor Moses for his superlative showing in the Blues pre-season opening game against  New York Red Bulls and hints that the Nigerian will stay at Stamford Bridge.
The Nigerian winger was oustanding despite the English champions losing 4-2 to the Major League Soccer side.
Moses spent the last two seasons away on loan but Mourinho appears to want him to spend the new season at Chelsea.
The Chelsea Twitter handle all but confirmed Moses will be kept for the coming season when it tweeted: “Jose says he is happy with the performances shown by Moses and Traore tonight. They are both in his plans for the coming season. #CFCTour.”
The Super Eagles forward did enough to earn Mourinho’s praise after carving out Chelsea’s first  real chance of the game but his effort was well saved by Kyle Reynish in goal for Red Bulls.
The former Wigan winger also came to scoring late in the first half when his effort struck the post.
Mourinho singled out the Nigerian for praise after the game despite his side’s shocking loss.
”Moses is strong, he’s experienced. He’s fast, he’s aggressive,” Mourinho told the post-match press conference. “He has to learn to play with us obviously. But I’m happy with his week, with his 45 minutes. The next match, 45 more minutes.
“Victor had an evolution over the last couple of years.”
Chelsea’s next match is on Saturday against  Paris Saint Germain, the French side that knocked them out of the Champions League last season.
