Ex-Super Eagles player, Victor Moses has come out to say that Antonio Conte is his mentor who has played an important role in his career.
Moses recently revealed that his loan move to Inter Milan is an honour because he is ready to help Conte achieve his targets in Italy.
According to him, Conte is a friend and even if he has played under several managers during his football career, the Italian is the best of them all.
He added that the Italian changed everything at Chelsea when he joined and did amazing things for the club and English football.
His words, “It’s an honour to link up once again with an important figure in my career,”
“He is my mentor and friend. I have played under a lot of managers and I’ve loved every single one of them. The most important one was Antonio Conte.
“At Chelsea he just came in and changed everything. He is an amazing man; he totally changed my game to be honest.
“He gave me that fighting spirit to believe in myself and to enjoy my football same time.
“And then when he came that first season, we won the league, the following season we won the FA Cup.
“It was an amazing season for me under Antonio Conte and I’ll always respect him for that, he’s an amazing man.
“I’ve never played that [wingback] position before. When the manager came in, he talked me through it and then put me there.
“It was good to have the manager’s support, and he backed me and gave me the confidence to go out there and express myself.
“So I just wanted to go out there to play for him, the fans and the football club. I didn’t let him down.”
“I’ve come to realise that you play better under a coach that believes in you and that is what Conte has done for me. I’ve played three matches and it’s been wonderful,”
“I feel better already. Before the lockdown I’ve played three games. I started the match away to Udinese and we won 2-0. It is good for the team. We are playing for the good of the team.
“It is not easy, it is very tactical. It is important for me to put myself at the service of the team and my teammates but the manager has been of tremendous help.
“He tells me what to do and I try to remember and follow most of his instructions. He is one of the best managers in the world.
“He played football himself and he has a lot of passion. I am very happy to work with him again.”
