Moses: Conte transformed my play at Chelsea

Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses has credited manager Antonio Conte for helping him adapt to his new position in the team this season.

The Nigeria international reinvigorated his career by becoming a key member of the Blues lineup in his new role as wing-back.

Moses never played in the position before, but Conte threw him in at the deep end and continued to encourage him, which has produced excellent results, with the 26-year-old helping Chelsea to the top of the Premier League.

"He (Conte) didn't say to me, "Do I fancy playing wing back?" He just put me in there, and after that, he just kept on encouraging me," Moses told British media, according to the Daily Mail.

"He went through what the position was all about, constantly talking to me in training to make sure I was improving in it. I took that in and I didn't look back.

"I have been learning a lot defensively. And when I play against a winger…I understand what they are going to do before they try and go past me, so it makes it a lot easier."

"You need a lot of stamina to be able to play that position, and it's a responsibility for me as well," he added.

"I have never played that position before, but I am enjoying it. The more games I play, the better I get."
