Victor Moses can play both in defense and as a winger. Victor Moses' weekly salary in Chelsea is 75 000 pounds.
Victor Moses' way to glory
Moses passed from an unknown boy born in the north of Africa to the champion of England. Just amazing it! Moses came to the UK and was adopted. He began to play for the school team, where he saw Scouts 'Crystal Palace.' They recommended him to a paid school in Croydon, whose school team was led by Colin Pates, who previously played for Arsenal and Chelsea.
On November 6, 2007, at the age of 16 Victor debuted in the first team 'Palace' in the match Champion Thorn. By the end of the season, he scored three goals for the club and signed a contract with the team until 2012.
Next, he moved to Wigan for 3.5 million. At the beginning of the 2010/2011 season, he suffered two injuries, which prevented him from winning a place in the main team. Only after the departure of Charles N'Zogbiya in the summer of 2011, Moses became the main player of 'Wigan' and proved himself well in the course of the campaign.

In August 2012, Wigan accepted the fifth offer of Chelsea and allowed Mosesto become a member of the Blues. The amount of the transfer was 11.5 million pounds. With the London club in the 2012/2013 season, Victor became the winner of the Europa League, but he only occasionally appeared on the field in Premier League matches.
Victor did not go to Chelsea. Mourinho generally forgot about the Nigerian. 'He did not even talk to me,' Moses complained. Everything changed with Conte's appointment to Chelsea. Antonio unexpectedly returned Moses to Stamford Bridge and made him a defensive wingback. Now the Nigerian is one of the key players of the leader of the Premier League.
Recently, midfielder Victor Moses signed a 4-year contract, which should last to July 2021. Previous Moses' agreement with 'Chelsea' would get expired in the summer of 2019.
