- Victor Moses has showered praises on his current boss at Inter Milan Antonio Conte
- The former Super Eagles star has played under the Italian boss at Chelsea
- Moses also talked about being converted to a left-back by the former Juventus boss
Victor Moses has revealed that his favourite manager remains former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.
In an exclusive interview with The Nation, the former Nigerian international outlines how his career has blossomed over the years under the Italian manager at Stamford Bridge and at Inter Milan.
“I have played under a lot of managers and I’ve loved every single one of them. The most important one was Antonio Conte.
"At Chelsea he just came in and changed everything. He is an amazing man; he totally changed my game to be honest. He gave me that fighting spirit to believe in myself and to enjoy my football same time. And then when he came that first season, we won the league, the following season we won the FA Cup.”
The AFCON 2013 winner with Nigeria also appreciated the fact that Conte gave him another opportunity to work with him at the San Siro.
“Having the opportunity to work with the coach again is something I’m really happy about. I’ve spoken to him and he’s already explained the Club’s project to me. I want to be part of it, I’m happy to be here.
“I’ll give my all and want to help the team. There’s a lot of quality here, I want to make my contribution out on the pitch and enjoy myself. That’s the most important thing.”
Moses usually played as a winger but under Conte the 29-year-old was converted to a left-back which helped Chelsea win the Premier League and the FA Cup.
“It was an amazing season for me under Antonio Conte and I’ll always respect him for that, he’s an amazing man. I’ve never played that (wing-back) position before. When the manager came in, he talked me through it and then put me there.
“It was good to have the manager’s support, and he backed me and gave me the confidence to go out there and express myself. So I just wanted to go out there to play for him, the fans and the football club. I didn’t let him down.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Daniel Akpeyi has claimed that he overhead his Super Eagles teammate telling somebody on the phone that he should not be invited to play in the national team.
The Super Eagles shot-stopper has come under immense pressure in his playing career from his teammates and the fans at large.
