Victor Moses Looks for Silver Linings as His Loan Spell Nears its End

Laurence Griffiths

Nearing the end of a loan none of Liverpool, Chelsea, or Victor Moses could reasonably call a great success, the player is looking to stay upbeat about what has been a largely wasted season.

After a handful of promising early outings, few would contend that Victor Moses' loan spell at Liverpool has been anything but a disappointment. With two games to go, though, and the end in sight, Moses is looking for some kind of a silver lining in what appears a largely wasted year at a time when the 23-year-old desperately needed match time to continue his development.

"I know I haven't played a lot of games this season, but I'm really enjoying my time at Liverpool," said a surprisingly upbeat Moses as he talked to SkySports Radio. "The manager, the staff, everyone at the training ground has been good to me. I've been enjoying myself and at the same time working hard on my game in training."

People being good and nice is swell and all, but after looking an intriguing, promising prospect at Wigan and showing flashes of the player many hoped he would become last season under Rafa Benitez at Chelsea, his Liverpool loan spell was meant to be the final stage in his development. It was meant to do for him what a loan at Sunderland appears to have done for Fabio Borini.

Instead, the lack of positional flexibility shown when Brendan Rodgers attempted to move Moses inside as part of a shift to a three centre half system and the emergence of Raheem Sterling have kept him on the bench. And meanwhile, Chelsea appear to have already replaced him. Still, onward and upward and positive thinking. Especially now that his loan is nearly done.

"When I came," he added, "I knew Liverpool were going to do well this season because if you look at the players they have—Suarez, Sturridge, and Coutinho who have all played a big part this season—they are talented players. I'm happy to be here among them. They've all been fantastic and we're gelling together; working hard together as a team. That's the important thing."
