Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses is relishing the tussle with new-signing Davide Zappacosta to retain his starting spot, report the London Evening Standard.
The London Evening Standard report that the Premier League champions parted with £23M in order to secure Zappacosta’s services on Deadline Day. When a club spends that sort of figure on a player you would expect them to be in contention for a spot in Antonio Conte’s side.
However, Moses is not intimidated by Zappacosta. The Nigerian is quoted by the London Evening Standard claiming that he is ready for the battle that lies ahead and insists that there will be more than enough minutes to share out in the season ahead:
“I am ready for the competition. We needed more players, to be honest. We have a lot of games to play this season. You can’t expect to play 60 games or so. I’m ready to take on anyone that is coming here. I just want to play my football.”
This is further evidence of the great mentality that Moses has. He may well face an uphill battle to remain in the side, but he’s not going to throw his toys out the pram, instead he will fight for his spot.
