Chelsea new boy Victor Moses has paid tribute to previous club Wigan Athletic, reveals The
Moses joined the Blues in the summer transfer window from Wigan for a £9m fee, but was a relatively low profile signing in a window that saw the introduction to the squad of the likes of Lille’s Eden Hazard for £32m, and Oscar from Internacional for a fee of around £25m.
Nigerian international Moses, who scored six goals in 37 appearances during Wigan’s Premier League survival campaign last season, believes that signing for The Latics in 2010 helped him improve as a player.
He said: ‘Playing at Wigan developed my character. Roberto Martinez is a great manager and he loves to play football. Having a manager like him encourages you to play the football in the right way and carry yourself in a more professional way. It was great working with him.”
Moses is yet to make his Chelsea debut since signing on 24th August and was an unused substitute in the 4-1 UEFA Super Cup defeat to Atletico Madrid in Monaco. Despite this, the former Eagle hopes to impress under new manager Roberto Di Matteo and could be in line for a debut appearance on the weekend against London rivals QPR.
