Conte Affirms Victor Moses Now a Complete Player

Published on: 07 March 2017

Super Eagles forward, Victor Moses, has been described as a complete player now after adapting to his new role as a wing back at Chelsea.


According to Chelsea’s Italian Manager, Antonio Conte, Moses has fitted perfectly into his new role which has made him an important part of the Stamford Bridge starting IX this season.

“I knew of him, but to see him live is very important to judge a player,” said Antonio Conte, as quoted by

“I always saw him as a winger, very good in one versus one, but a bit poor defensively.

“Then, when I decided to change the system, I wanted to try him in this new role. Now we have a complete player,” observed the Italian who is excited his experimentation has paid off.

Moses was converted into a wingback by the Italian manager and has gone from a peripheral figure at the Blues to a key player.

Just last week, Moses signed an extension to his Chelsea deal which ties him to Stamford Bridge until 2021. He also got an improved wage package believed to be about 75,000 Pounds sterling a week from the 45,000 pounds sterling he was earning prior to the new deal.

Meanwhile, Moses and his Super Eagles teammates are to stay at four-star hotel, Crowne Plaza Hotel Ealing in England for their international friendly games with Senegal and Burkina Faso.

According to sources close to the organisers of the two matches, guests and visitors have praised the hotel on tripadvisor, labeling their staff polite and friendly, and the rooms very comfortable.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) back office staff hinted that the 25 invited players are to arrive at Crowne Plaza Hotel Ealing as from 1300 hours on Monday, March 20.

“The hotel, which is located at Western Avenue, Hanger Lane, London, W5 1HG, is 1.98 miles away from the famous Wembley Stadium, where the England national team usually play their matches.

“The facilities at the hotel include a gym, fitness center and golf course.

Currently on a five–match winning streak, since losing 0-1 to African vice champions Egypt in a 2017 Cup of Nations qualifying match in Alexandria a year ago, the Super Eagles are ranked 41st in the world, 10 places below Senegal’s Teranga Lions and three places below the Etalons of Burkina Faso.
