Victor Moses reckons his year at Anfield is just what he needs…
Liverpool’s on-loan Nigerian forward Victor Moses think his parent club Chelsea would have damaged his career if he stayed any longer, reports Sky Sports.
“As a young footballer coming up, I just want to play games,” said Moses, was only awarded 12 Premier League starts at Stamford Bridge last term.
“Not playing can really damage your career,” he continued.
Moses did score 10 goals in all competitions, but managed only one in the league since his £9m move from Wigan last summer.
The 22-year-old would have struggled for game time even more so this season, with Jose Mourinho bringing in Willian and Andre Schurrle, to compete with the likes of Eden Hazard, Juan Mata, Oscar and Kevin De Bruyne for attacking midfield positions.
Moses though, is completely focussed on his new club.
“Liverpool is a massive club and I just want to enjoy my football and try to help my team-mates.
“The move to Chelsea was a massive step for me. I just wanted to go there, express myself and enjoy my football.
“Coming to Liverpool is another step for me.”
The powerful Nigerian, who represented England at youth level, can expect to be deployed from the right as a wide attacker in Brendan Rodgers, supporting the on form Daniel Sturridge who will play through the middle.
Moses will hope he can make the switch from Stamford Bridge to Anfield as comfortably as the England man has.
