Moses' Liverpool struggle strains relationship between Chelsea and Rodgers

Victor Moses’ struggle to get a regular place in Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool side means the winger’s parent club, Chelsea, have baulked at letting Ryan Bertrand move on loan to Anfield, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Moses turned down advances from the likes of Everton, West Bromwich Albion, Southampton and Norwich City to link up with Rodgers on Merseyside, despite Chelsea feeling the former Wigan Athletic player would be better served signing on with one of his other suitors.

Rodgers, a former coach at Stamford Bridge, used his connections with the club to steer Moses to his team, having also signed Daniel Sturridge on a permanent basis from the Blues. Rodgers was considering a loan approach for Ryan Bertrand but with Chelsea unhappy at the amount of playing time Moses has had, the club could push the left-back to another move.

Fulham are said to have been lining-up a move for Bertrand, while it was also suggested that Chelsea could offer Bertrand - who played on loan for Rodgers and Reading - to Southampton as part of an offer for Luke Shaw. Bertrand, 24, has made only a handful of appearances for Chelsea this season.

Moses has featured 15 times for the Reds this term but was withdrawn at half-time during Liverpool’s FA Cup win over Oldham Athletic on Sunday, with the game goalless, and has recently lost out on a place in the starting XI to the likes of Raheem Sterling. Moses made 44 appearances for Chelsea last season, scoring 10 goals.

Why on earth should Moses get pitch time when his level of effort and commitment is so poor? I would choose any of the other squad players before Moses, even out of position. He has only himself to blame for the lack of playing time.
