Victor Moses has opened up on the reasons why he chose to leave Chelsea on loan back in January.

The Nigerian’s talents as a wing-back were not of great use to Maurizio Sarri, and the player who had been key for Antonio Conte played only 5 games in all competitions for the Blues.

Unsurprisingly, when an opportunity appeared to join Fenerbahce on loan, Moses decided to take it.

“It’s tough, as Chelsea’s a very special place for me and I’ve always had a great relationship with the fans but it became very obvious that I was not in the manager’s plans,” Moses told in a conversation with the Guardian’s Will Unwin. “I have achieved great things there but I just needed to play football and that’s why I got the move to Fenerbahce.”

The Turkish giants were in a state of disarray and too close to the relegation battle for one of the most decorated clubs in the country.
“It obviously wasn’t the easiest option to take,” Moses said.

“I wanted to come here because I just wanted to play football. I want to make sure the club is in a better position than when I arrived and that is a huge test of myself as a player, to take them to where they want to be.”
If the deal with Fenerbahce stays, Moses will play for the club for one more season. Judging by his words, he does not mind that option.

If anybody is going to get the best out of Victor Moses, its Antonio Conte in the Italian league. If this all comes together then good luck to him.

“I am here with my wife and two kids. My kids are going to school here and my wife has settled down. It has made it a lot easier for me to go to work and come home to see the kids, it feels like I am still back in London.”

However, Daily Mail alleges that Moses could be on Antonio Conte’s wishlist should our ex-manager take charge of Inter. The wing-back could reportedly finally seal a permanent move to Italy for £11m.
