SPORT Moses puts Shield loss be­hind, ready for big sea­son

Daily Trust - - OPINION - By Mansur Abubakar

Su­per Ea­gles and Chelsea player Vic­tor Moses has de­scribed Sun­day’s lost to Arse­nal in the English Premier League cur­tain raiser, the char­ity shield as ‘not the end­ing we hoped for’ but is look­ing for­ward to a suc­cess­ful sea­son with the Blues.

The former Wi­gan Ath­letic for­ward made the com­ments via so­cial me­dia site Twit­ter yes­ter­day where he also thanked Chelsea fans for their amaz­ing sup­port de­spite the dis­ap­point­ing end­ing to the high in­ten­sity game at Wem­b­ley which saw Arse­nal tri­umph 4-1 on penal­ties af­ter a 1-1 draw.

“Not the end­ing we were hop­ing for yes­ter­day in the end but we feel fit and ready for a big sea­son ahead. Fans were amaz­ing yes­ter­day (Sun­day).” The player who scored An­to­nio Conte’s side goal wrote.

26-year-old Moses still has a one­match ban (from last sea­son’s FA Cup fi­nal against Arse­nal) but the English FA al­lowed him to play the char­ity shield match, due to the fact the match is con­sid­ered as a friendly.

The Kaduna born star will now be unavail­able to play in Chelsea’s Premier League opener against Burn­ley on Sat­ur­day.
