Mourinho hints at Moses role

The Nigeria international has caught the eye of the Portuguese with his efforts during preseason.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has praised the "terrific" efforts of Victor Moses in the build-up to the new season and hinted he could play a starring role in the new-look team.

The forward's debut season at Stamford Bridge saw him make the bulk of his appearances from the substitutes bench, firstly under Roberto Di Matteo and then Rafa Benitez.

But the Nigeria international could be

set for a starring role under Mourinho after setting up three goals in the clashes with Inter and AC Milan.

When he was asked about the Nigerian’s chances in the team, he said: "Victor [Moses] has been terrific, working very hard.

"In his position we have Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Andre Schurrle, and with Victor we can change during a match and give new life to the team."
Moses made 44 appearances for the club in all competitions last season after joining from Wigan in Aug. 2012.
