‘A Great Year For Me’ – Victor Moses Celebrates 2017 Despite CAF AWARD Snub
Written by AaronWeb on December 25, 2017
Nigeria super eagles forward, Victor Moses still finds it worthy to celebrate his achievements and milestone in the year 2017.
The winger recounts his achievements in the year, acknowledging Conte’s role as he helped reawaken his career
Victor Moses has tagged 2017 as ‘a great year’ following his English Premier League triumph with Chelsea and Nigeria’s 2018 World Cup qualification.
The 27-year-old had embarked on loan spells at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham prior to the 2016-17 campaign.
But the former Wigan man hit an incredible form that coincided with an unprecedented transformation – as he transitioned into a wing-back under Antonio Conte – last season.
And he has revealed the challenges adapting while being grateful to Conte for his career revival at Stamford Bridge.
“It’s a bit crazy and shows how far I’ve come,” Moses told Daily Star.Advertisement
“Becoming a wing back is not an easy transition. It’s not an easy job and you need the stamina to play there.
“The manager works me on the training ground, and it’s been really good. When you have someone who is really backing you it gives you confidence.Advertisement
“It’s been a great year for me. I’ve really enjoyed it, but want to keep it going.
However, despite missing out on the final shortlist for the African Player of the Year, behind Gabon’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Egypt’s Mohamed Salah and Senegal’s Sadio Mane, the Super Eagle is impressed at being nominated.
