Liverpool save Victor Moses from Chelsea nightmare

Victor Moses has revealed he joined Liverpool to prevent his dream move to Chelsea from turning in to a career-ending nightmare.

The young winger opted to join the Anfield club on a season-long loan despite Jose Mourinho making it clear that he will get the same first team opportunities at Chelsea than his team mates.

The move to Liverpool came as a stark contrast to what Moses had said just a season earlier after saying his transfer to Stamford Bridge from Wigan was a "dream move".

However, the Nigerian international has defended his move to Merseyside, saying a season on the bench could damage his career beyond repair.

He decided that he had a better chance of playing a more prominent role for Liverpool than he did at Chelsea and is delighted to be working under Brendan Rodgers.

He told the Daily Mirror: "Not playing games can really damage your career.

"The move to Chelsea was a massive step for me. I just wanted to go there, express myself and enjoy my football. It was a dream for me - but I want to keep strong and keep working hard at what I do.

"As a young footballer coming up, I just want to play games.

"Liverpool is a massive club and I just want to enjoy my football out on the pitch and try to help my team-mates.

"It is the right opportunity for me. It's definitely the right move - this is a massive club, with all the history."

The 22-year-old revealed that Rodgers sold him on his vision for the club, in which Moses will play a big part.

"Coming to Liverpool is another step for me. Brendan Rodgers is a great manager and he's done fantastically well here helping the lads," he explained.

"When I spoke to him, he told me what I'm going to be doing here. I was really pleased with that and I'm looking forward to working with him.

"The manager has done very well and the formation and players here will help me and I just want to gel in, get to know the players and play with them.

"I am excited to be working in this system with a lot of quality players here."
