Victor Moses: I owe it all to Antonio Conte
Nigeria’s Forward Victor Moses hailed Chelsea’s boss Antonio Conte for the resurgent in his Chelsea career.
Antonio Conte’s decision to convert the Nigerian into a wing-back early in the 2016-17 campaign was instrumental in both driving the Blues to a Premier League title and also reviving Moses’ Stamford Bridge career.
“Yes, it is amazing, I am pleased with the position I am in today. My manager and teammates helped me and encouraged me.
Having already been nominated for the Confederation of African Football’s (CAF) Player of the Year award, Moses has now been named one of the top-five players from his continent as voting for the BBC’s African Player of the Year prize opens.
The Super Eagles reached the round of 16 in 2014 but were knocked out by France.
The winner of the BBC African Player of the Year award will be announced on Monday, December 11, while the CAF Player of the Year for 2017 will be announced on January 4.
