Victor Moses snubs Mourinho, reveals best manager he has worked with

Victor Moses

Chelsea loanee, Victor Moses, has named Antonio Conte as the best manager he worked under.

The former Super Eagles winger also rated Neil Warnock, Roberto Martinez, Rafael Benitez, Domenico Tedesco and Mark Hughes to be better managers ahead of current Tottenham Hotspur boss, Jose Mourinho.

Moses, who is currently on loan at Spartak Moscow, worked under Mourinho at Stamford Bridge between 2013 and 2015.

He was sent out on loan to Liverpool and Stoke City under the Portuguese.

When asked to rate a list of favourite managers he has worked under, Moses told Spartak’s official website: “[Antonio] Conte is on this list.

“He helped me to believe in myself. And that’s purely from a human perspective and not because he found me a new position on the right side of the defence.

“Next Roberto Martinez, Rafael Benitez. Neil Warnock, with whom I made my debut at Crystal Palace. [Domenico] Tedesco and also Mark Hughes.”

When quizzed on his decision to snub Mourinho, the 30-year-old added: “Without a doubt, Jose [Mourinho] is a cool pro, I respect his achievements. But there wasn’t the necessary connection between the player and the coach.

“In the end, I tried in training, I wanted to play, but Mourinho had a different opinion.”
