Antonio Conte insists he saw the potentials in Victor Moses straight away when he took over as coach.
Moses joined Chelsea in 2012 and after a season under Rafa Benitez, the Nigeria international was never given a chance at the club when Mourinho returned as coach in 2013.
The forward was sent on loan to Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham before Conte took over at Chelsea.
Moses has been impressive in his role as a wing-back in Conte’s 3-4-3 formation and the coach insists he saw the potentials in the player straight away when he took over.

“I could see his potential from the first days of the summer training camp,” Conte said in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Moses has important qualities: technique, physical strength, the ability to cover 70 metres of the pitch.
“I find it incredible that someone like him has been underestimated.”
Moses was named Man of the Match in Chelsea’s 1-0 win at Middlesbrough.
