Victor Moses Speaks On Why He Left Chelsea Under Sarri
Super Eagles forward, Victor Moses, has revealed that he left English Premier League side, Chelsea because he needed more playing time.
Moses who enjoyed playing time under Antonio Conte joined Fenerbahce on an 18-month loan in January.
The Nigerian despite being a key player in the victory of the Blues in the 2016/2017 season, he had only five appearances under Maurizio Sarri this season.
Upon his arrival at Fenerbahce, he has scored three times in 13 Super Lig games and also helped the club climb into the top half.
“It’s tough, as Chelsea’s a very special place for me and I’ve always had a great relationship with the fans but it became very obvious that I was not in the manager’s plans.”
“I have achieved great things there but I just needed to play football and that’s why I got the move to Fenerbahce.”
“In the stadium the atmosphere is a lot different [to England], It’s unlike anything I have ever experienced in football, every game is a must-win game and they are so passionate as they just want us to win and make everybody happy. It’s not just football, it’s a way of life here.”
“It’s a massive experience, playing against Galatasaray and Besiktas, you can feel the atmosphere, it feels like the stadium is going to fall down due to the fans singing and bouncing. The atmosphere is amazing, you can easily tell the passion they’ve got for football here is crazy. They just love football and want the team to win, that’s why they support the team.”
“I am here with my wife and two kids. My kids are going to school here and my wife has settled down. It has made it a lot easier for me to go to work and come home to see the kids, it feels like I am still back in London,” Moses told The UK Guardian.
