Opportunity they say comes but once but it seems to have come twice for Nigeria and Chelsea FC forward Victor Moses. After such menacing displays in the blue colour of Wigan Athletic, it was with great expectations that Nigerian fans received news that he had swapped the Wigan Athletic blue for Chelsea FC blue.
He went on to prove an inspired signing after he played a part in Chelsea FC winning the UEFA Europa League in 2013. He also won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations with the Super Eagles led by the late coach Stephen Keshi.
Thereafter his career nose dived. Loan spells at Stoke City, Liverpool FC and Westham United did not prove very successful owing largely to injuries. This resulted in an exile from the Nigeria National team for a long period.
The appointment of Antonio Conte as the new manager of Chelsea FC has however given Moses another opportunity to shine. Conte’s 4-2-4 formation bodes well for Moses who loves to take on defenders on the wings. His impressive performance during pre-season has ensured he already has two substitute appearances for the Blues this season.
As Bristol Rovers come calling at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday 23/8/16 in the English Football League (EFL), formerly known as Capital One Cup, Victor Moses would be expected to start on the left flank. This would be an opportunity to impress the coach and push further for a place in Conte’s staring IX. Opportunity has come for a second time and Victor must grab it with both hands. There might not be a third time.
