Nigeria forward Victor Moses celebrated his fifth year with Chelsea last week, expressing his satisfaction at being a key player for the Premier League champions. Despite being loaned out to Liverpool, Stoke, and West Ham, he has found his place at Stamford Bridge and has become an integral part of Chelsea’s squad.
Moses reflected on his journey, saying, “It does feel like yesterday, to be honest. I am glad to still be here, and I am enjoying every single bit of my football at the moment. I just want to keep on going. The most important thing is helping my teammates when we are on the pitch and making sure we win as many games as we can.”
He acknowledged that the upcoming season would be challenging but emphasized the importance of team unity and hard work. Moses missed Chelsea’s first home match of the season due to suspension, but he is eager to contribute to the team’s success.
Chelsea faces Everton at Stamford Bridge, and Moses is optimistic about securing three points, noting Everton’s strength and the need to concentrate on their own performance. He highlighted the new additions to the squad, such as Tiemoue Bakayoko, Anthony Rudiger, and Alvaro Morata, emphasizing the importance of teamwork and player integration.
Moses also expressed his enthusiasm for Chelsea’s return to the UEFA Champions League, having been drawn against Atletico Madrid, Roma, and Qarabag in a challenging group. He is looking forward to the competition, saying, “It is good for a great club like us to be playing the Champions League again. We missed it last season, and it was disappointing we were not in it. Now we are back, and that is where we should be. We will do the best we can to make the fans happy and take each group stage game as it comes.”
Moses’ journey at Chelsea has seen ups and downs, but he is now an essential part of the squad and is poised to make a significant impact in the upcoming season and in the UEFA Champions League.
