Moses Listed For Clear Out At Chelsea

Former Nigeria international, Victor Moses, has been listed by coach Frank Lampard among Chelsea players to be ask to go via transfer market listing ahead of next season.

Moses who arrived Stamford Bridge in 2012 from Wigan has had a mix of lows and downs experience with the Blues having had to endure a back and forth loan deals which have taken him to Liverpool, Stoke City, West Ham, Fenerbahce and currently Inter Milan.

The 29-year old versatile player had won the Europa League in his first season at Chelsea and in-between his loan sojourns, he also won the Premier League with Chelsea in 2016/17 and the FA Cup the following season under Antonio Conte.

In a report in The Sun, Moses’ hopes of returning to Chelsea has now been dealt a massive blow with Lampard listing him among Chelsea stars who are surplus to requirements in a bid to raise the fund needed to buy Leverkusen attacking star Kai Havertz and Leicester full-back Ben Chilwell.

Inter Milan have an option to sign the 29-year-old wing-back for £10million but are not prepared to pay that during the coronavirus recession.

They could complete a deal for half of that price and Chelsea are unlikely to stand in the way of his departure.

    Once upon a Victor Moses. One bad decision too many to think about now. Still a fan man, belief is key.

     
  • _What next for Victor Moses?_

    It has always been on the cards and now it has happened: Victor Moses has now been formally informed by Frank Lampard that his future lies away from Stamford Bridge.

    After announcing his international resignation in 2018 after the World Cup in Russia – a decision that hit many Super Eagles fans like a rock owing to how highly valued he is – Victor Moses has had a fair few struggles in club football ultimately culminating in this announcement by Chelsea to cut him loose.

    Whilst some fans would bizarrely wish to link the former Wigan man’s struggles to his premature resignation from the Super Eagles, in reality Victor Moses has a few highs but in truth far larger lows in club football since 2012 that he signed for Chelsea.

    _Highs_

    Arguably, Victor Moses won his spurs under Antonio Conte when in August 2016, he played his first league game in 3 years for Chelsea en route to becoming a permanent fixture in the Italian’s starting 11 having adapted seemlessy to his 3-4-3 formation as a full back. This was a arguably Victor Moses most exciting top flight football moment to date.

    Loan moves to Stoke City, West Ham and Fenerbahce were also mildy successful whilst his career is again enjoying a renaissance under the same Antonio Conte in Inter Milan.

    _ Lows _

    Throughout his career, Victor Moses has always convinced club coaches that he is sharp enough to push for a place as a high quality winger whilst his defencive skills lack the depth needed to compete with the truly world class right full backs.

    So, he is always sort of in-between which is why he tends to thrive largely under Conte who uses him as a cross-breed between a winger and a full back (wingback). As 3-4-3 formation is not widely used, Victor Moses core skills aren’t in hot demand by the truly top coaches of top clubs.

    Under Brendan Rodgers in Liverpool in the 2013/14 season, Moses struggled badly for meaningful game time, starting only 9 of the 22 games that he featured. In what was initially hailed as quality loan signing, Victor Moses failed to distinguish himself as a reputable winger at Anfield. He was promptly shown the door after just one season.

    _What next?_

    Victor Moses has skills no doubt. He is highly experienced and very mature in his play. Never say never but I doubt that his services will be sought after by the Man Cities or Real Madrid’s of this world.

    But, there is enough in his arsenal to feature for modest clubs like Inter Milan, Brighton or Galastasaray. Having said that, football’s capacity to suprise is immutable.

    So, we can only wait and see how things pan out for a player who may yet suprise many with his next career move. After all, who ever thought Ighalo would presently be having the time of his life in Manchester United at present!

    The man that almost single handedly destroyed Afcon champs Algeria in Uyo. Many still believe Nigeria would have beaten Algeria at the Afcon if he was present. Sadly, his terrific form for Nigeria does not cascade down to his club games. And the reason is that he is not valued like he is valued with Nigeria. One thing about Moses, if you believe in him, make him feel important and wanted/needed, he will rise to the occasion and even exceed your expectations. Say the right words in his ears, and he will be your hero on the pitch. But if you doubt him or show a lack of trust in him, he will become pretty much useless to you. This is a player that is at his best under a good man manager.

    Victor Moses remains for me one of the top players we had in the last decade. Former liverpool, chelsea and inter milan. No players has come close to representing big clubs like him in SE.
    Very shy player. Soneone who love to keep his lifestyle away from the media. I wish a permanent deal can be agree with both clubs
