While confirming that he would employ a rotation policy for his team selections in the coming season, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has praised winger Victor Moses for his ability to change a game as an impact substitute, Sky
Chelsea played 69 matches in eight different competitions last season, and due to their busy schedule, Moses, along with Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Oscar – and Yossi Benayoun and Marko Marin, to a lesser degree – was often rotated for the attacking midfield positions. He went on to make a total of 43 appearances, scoring 10 goals, in his first campaign at Stamford Bridge.
Moses will face even more competition for a place in the starting XI next season, after Chelsea added Bayer Leverkusen’s Andre Schurrle to their squad this summer, with Kevin de Bruyne, signed in January 2012, now in the reckoning after spending last season on loan at Werder Bremen.
But Mourinho believes Moses can make an impact this season, especially when coming off the bench. He told the Daily Star: “Victor has been terrific, working very hard. In his position, we have Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Andre Schurrle, and with Victor, we can change during a match and give new life to the team.”
