Victor Moses has lavished praises and reverence on compatriot, Michael Emenalo, who recently resigned his role at Chelsea and also revealed the never-ending ropes of helps and encouragement the latter gave him.
Moses, who was acquired by Emenalo for Chelsea from Wigan Athletic in 2012 revealed how the ex-international called and encouraged him during his not-so-successful loan spells at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham.
‘’He is someone that has always believed in the ability that I have got,’’ Moses told goal.com.
‘’He has always stuck by me and he’s always believed that I am going to achieve something at this club. As you can see last season, I did the best I can to help my team-mates and to make sure that we win the league.’’
The 25-year-old Nigeria international also wished Emenalo and his family the best in future as he spoke further of how the former Chelsea Technical Director believed he had a future at Chelsea.
Moses added: ‘’He is someone who has always encouraged me to make sure I get to the next level. Even when I was on loan, he was always encouraging me, speaking to me.
‘’To make sure I am doing the right thing, making sure I am enjoying my football and making sure I reach my best level
in the future.
‘’He believed that I had a future here at Chelsea. He helped me from the very first day that I got here so I want to wish him all the best in his career. I want to wish him and all his family the best as well.’’
Moses has been shortlisted alongside 4 other players for the BBC African footballer of the year which takes place on Monday, December 11.
