Victor Moses hails Antonio Conte's man-management skills

Antonio Conte has enjoyed the perfect start to his time at Chelsea.

The Blues have won their first three games of the new season and signs of the Italian's tactical nous have already started to shine through.

One player who has perhaps benefited from his arrival more than anyone is Victor Moses, whose career at Stamford Bridge looked to be dead and buried until the start of the current campaign.

The 25-year-old has been out on loan three times, to Liverpool, Stoke City, and most recently, West Ham, but he has now been given a chance to prove himself by the new man in the dugout.

And speaking to the Sun, the midfielder admitted his revival is down to one thing - Conte's unique man-management skills.

“He’s very different because he came to the club and showed us it’s about more than football," he said.


"He cares about the players individually. He wants to know what we are eating and he always wants us in the gym to prevent us from getting injured."

That's not necessarily a critique of former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, who Moses presumably never really got to know because he was always being sent out on loan.

Interestingly, though, he also echoed Eden Hazard's recent comments about Conte having an advantage because he was a top player, so perhaps there's a bit of a cheeky dig at Mourinho in there somewhere.

Why Conte's unique 

Conte certainly appears to have a strong bond with his players already, with Moses adding:

“He wants everyone to give 100 per cent to 120 per cent.

“This is because he is the kind of manager that doesn’t want to see any player going down, he wants everyone to get to the same level.

“He’s a very unique and a different manager from the other managers because he’s passionate and loves the game as well."

The manager's main task is to ensure Chelsea don't have another season like the last, but given the way they've started, it looks like Conte's revolution at the club is well underway.
