Victor Moses has revealed that former Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, never spoke with him during his time at the club.
The Super Eagles winger, moved to Stamford Bridge in 2012, but has been sent out on loan for three years.
However, he has been given a chance to play at Chelsea by new coach, Antonio Conte.
“I’m delighted to be back,” Moses told ESPN FC.
“I thought I did well in my first season here, but due to circumstances – a manager [Rafa Benitez] going, a manager [Mourinho] coming in – I wasn’t really given a chance.
“[Mourinho] never spoke to me. I thought in my head, ‘He’s got his own players already.’
“I think we chatted a couple of times on the phone – he asked if I was alright at Liverpool [where Moses was on loan], but that was it.
“The manager who is here now [Conte] is giving everyone a chance – even the young lads. I’m pleased that he’s here and I’ve just got to go out there and enjoy my football.
“As long as you work hard, the manager will see it and he’ll give you an opportunity.”
Moses and his Blues’ team-mates, will take on Mourinho’s Manchester United on Sunday.
