Former Chelsea assistant coach Steve Holland revealed why Victor Moses made Antonio Conte’s first-team during his spell at Chelsea.
The Nigerian winger benefitted from Conte’s change in style and played a wing-back role in the Italian manager’s 3-5-2 formation.
Conte won the Premier League in his spell in charge of Chelsea and left after a subdued second spell at Stamford Bridge.
Speaking to Daily Mail, Steve believes Moses did what the coach wants and was rewarded for his hard work, dedication, and loyalty.
“Players need hope that if they train well they’ll get a chance. At Chelsea, Antonio Conte changed to a back three and brought in Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso from the cold.
“I had Cesc Fabregas, John Terry, and Branislav Ivanovic sitting behind me. Moses and Alonso did well and played the rest of the season. It shows if you do what the coach wants, you get a chance.
Steve Holland is currently with the England national team, serving as assistant to Gareth Southgate.
