After the signing of Ashley Young, Nigerian international Victor Moses was the next signing made by Antonio Conte’s Inter and yet another recruitment coming from the English Premier league, although he spent last season on loan at Fenerbah├že.

Born in Nigeria, and raised in England, Victor Moses endured a difficult childhood, losing his parents at a young age to religious conflicts in his hometown Kaduna, Nigeria.

Victor moved to England as an 11 year old asylum seeker, knowing nobody and got raised in a foster home. Perhaps his strength of character and self determination has been the driving force behind his success as a footballer.

Stats:

Name: Victor Moses
Age: 29
Position: Wingback/Winger
Country: Nigeria

2019/20:

Appearances: 6(1).
Goals: 1.
Assists: 1.
Key Passes: 3.
Dribbles: 10.

What Does Vcitor Moses Brings To The Team?

Moses hasn’t feature much this season due to a thigh muscle Injury. Last season he featured in 14 games, scoring 4 times in the process after arriving in January. Moses arrives with the idea of adding depth to the squad, as well as vast experience as well as being one of Conte’s most trusted player during his tenure at Chelsea.

Moses is an avid dribbler of the ball. Possesses a trait of running at the defenders, always eager to get on those one on one situations. He is highly versatile, having played majority of his career as a winger or a supporting striker.

However, in 2016, during Chelsea’s pre season tour then new coach Antonio Conte unraveled his talent in a new role – wingback. Moses excelled there greatly: 3 goals and 2 assists as well as creating 28 chances with 42 interceptions. He missed only 4 games in Chelsea’s title winning season.

Weaknesses

Moses has a strong penchant for dribbling. It is one of his strongest point as well as his weakness. He often loses possession during this process and gets fouled a lot too, no surprise there given his history of injuries.

Also, he isn’t one of the best crossers. Since the 2016/17 season till date, his best average cross per game ratio is 0.7. He isn’t a natural defender so he doesn’t execute his defensive duties perfectly. Nevertheless he always gives his best and with the assistance of the back three he will be covered.

Conclusion

Conte will surely alternate between Moses and Candreva and as such he will add more depth to the squad. Also, as someone that has previously worked with Conte, it will be easy for him to transform the coach’s ideas onto the pitch. Moses didn’t waste time in adapting to a new role at Chelsea, Antonio Conte will hope the same is true at Inter.
