Under pressure Chelsea winger delighted with first pre-season appearance

Chelsea winger Victor Moses was delighted to make a pre-season appearance for the Blues.

Chelsea winger Victor Moses made his first appearance for the Blues in more than a year after coming on during the club’s 2-1 friendly victory over Ferencvaros yesterday.

The 23-year-old winger has struggled to make an impact at Stamford Bridge since joining from Wigan Athletic in the summer of 2012.

Last summer, deemed surplus to requirements by boss Jose Mourinho, Moses joined Premier League rivals Liverpool on a one-year loan deal as he looked to rediscover his exciting form once showed at Wigan.

Instead, the Nigerian international’s season at Anfield largely turned out to be a underwhelming as he made just a handful of starts for the Reds and ultimately failed to persuade boss Brendan Rodgers to seek a permanent deal.

This summer, after contributing to Nigeria’s eventful World Cup campaign, the former Crystal Palace winger has been back in West London nursing an injury amid speculation over his future.

Despite his injury setback and the likelihood of being shipped out on loan again, Moses’ attitude has been faultless as he told Chelsea TV of his delight at returning to action.

“Fitness is getting there, this is my first pre-season game - obviously I came back injured from the World Cup and I joined up a little bit late with the lads.”

“I was getting treatment when I got back to the training ground but I’m delighted that I got on today.”

Moses replaced Cesar Azpilicueta in the 68th minute as Chelsea came from behind to defeat their Hungarian opponents.
