Moses: Conte tops but no space for Mourinho on my top 5 managers list

Victor Moses has revealed that he would have Antonio Conte as the best manager he has trained under and other coaches such as Mark Hughes and Neil Warnock ahead of Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho.

The Chelsea player on-loan at Spartak Moscow in Russia in interview with his current club official website explained why he would pick five managers and not include Jose Mourinho.

Moses was a strong member of the 2013 Chelsea team as he set a then record of the first to score in five consecutive games as The Blues claimed the Europa Cup that year.

But upon the arrival of Jose Mourinho for his second spell in charge of Chelsea, Victor Moses was shipped out to Liverpool.

He was also loaned out to Stoke City and West Ham during the years Jose Mourinho was in charge of the London club and Victor Moses said he had no idea why he wasn’t given chance to prove himself as he trained hard and put himself in the position to be picked.

“Without a doubt, Jose is a cool pro, I respect his merits.

“But it so happens that the necessary contact does not arise between the player and the coach.

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

Victor Moses named two of his Chelsea coaches, his Crystal Palace coach, his coaches at West Ham and Stoke City in his top five managers.

“Conte is exactly on this list. He helped me to believe in myself.

“And the point is precisely in the human attitude, and not in the fact that he found me a new position on the right flank of the defense.

“Next Roberto Martinez, Rafael Benitez. Neil Warnock, with whom I debuted at Crystal Palace.

“Domenico Tedesco. And also Mark Hughes.”
