Liverpool star backs Moses to shine

Published Add your comment

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson believes new signing Victor Moses has what it takes to succeed at Anfield following his deadline-day loan move from Premier League rivals Chelsea. 

22-year-old Moses, who joined Chelsea from Wigan Athletic in August 2012, saw his position in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge fall following the summer arrivals of talented attacking duo Andre Schurrle and Willian, and the Blues subsequently allowed the 22-year-old to seek temporary first-team opportunities elsewhere.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers evidently believes Moses can compliment the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez at Anfield and Henderson, who joined the club from Sunderland in June 2011, is clearly in agreement with his manager.

"I've played with Victor before and he's a fantastic talent," he told the club's official website. "He'll come in here and contribute to the team like the rest of the new signings.

"He'll be a brilliant addition to the squad and I'm really looking forward to seeing him. He's very talented. He's powerful, he's good with the ball, he can use both feet and he's good at cutting inside or going on down the outside.

"Victor is a quick player and he can get goals as well. I think he's perfect for our team. Hopefully he'll do really well here," he added. 

Moses was not the only player to join Liverpool on deadline day, with the club also managing to secure the services of defenders Mamadou Sakho and Tiago Llori. 

The Reds have started the 2013/14 season in superb form, with the formidable Sturridge carrying on his excellent form from last season and firing the club to three successive 1-0 victories. 

Following their win over fierce rivals Manchester United last weekend, Rodgers' side return to top-flight action against Swansea City on September 16.
