Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, has offered an explanation as to why Victor Moses is out of favour at the club.
Moses was an integral part of Antonio Conte’s last two seasons at Stamford Bridge, where he reinvented himself as a wing-back and helped his side to league and FA Cup titles, but has been sparsely used this campaign.
Aside Moses, England midfielder, Danny Drinkwater hasn’t featured since coming off the bench in the Community Shield against Manchester City as he struggles since a £35 million move from Leicester City under Antonio Conte have continued this season.
Sarri explained why the duo are not featuring much in the early stages of his tenure at the club.
“Moses is more suitable for playing wing back than like a winger or a full back, I think. I don’t know [if they have a future]. They have to improve but their characteristics are a little bit different,” Sarri told reporters.
“I think the situation is that Drinkwater for me is not suitable for a midfield with two other midfielders. I told him two months ago what I think.”oses is rumoured to be unhappy about his status at the club and could set to leave the former Premier League champions in January.
He has been linked with a reunion with Jose Mourinho at Manchester United and a return to his former club, Crystal Palace.
