Chelsea winger Victor Moses is determined to put his Liverpool nightmare behind him and force his way into Jose Mourinho’s first team this season according to London Evening Standard.
The Super Eagles forward made his first appearance for Chelsea in one year when he was introduced for Azpilicueta on the hour, in their 2-1 victory over Hungarian side Ferencvaros Sunday night.
The 23-year-old is aiming to rebuild his career after making just six Premier League starts at Liverpool last term after being sent to Anfield on a season-long loan.
He looked certain to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, but Mourinho is having second thoughts about the Nigeria international because he counts as a home grown player in the Premier League and Champions League.
Moses, who played for Nigeria at the World Cup this summer, is hoping to take the opportunity despite being linked with a loan move away and said: “There are a lot of quality players here, but I will keep giving it all I have got.
“I just have to forget about last season and think about this season, concentrate and keep working hard.
“What happened at Liverpool – that’s football for you. It was a loan move, I wanted to play football but I unfortunately, didn’t get as many games as I expected.
“My fitness is getting there. It was my first pre-season game – I came back injured after the World Cup. I couldn’t join up with the lads and was just getting treatment at the training ground.”
“I’m delighted I got on (against Ferencvaros) and had the minutes I had. You’re looking at three-four games before you get back to full fitness. I’m enjoying my football at the moment and will just keep working hard,” Moses further told London Evening Standard.
Now the Chelsea’s number 18, Moses is interestingly attracting interests from Premier League sides; Aston Villa and Southampton.
