Essien tells Victor Moses to leave Chelsea

Former Ghanaian international, Michael Essien, who spent great time at Chelsea, has advised Victor Moses to take advantage of the January transfer window and leave Stamford Bridge.

Moses has made only two appearances in the English Premier League for Chelsea this season.

Essien tells the Nigerian: “When you’re not playing you get frustrated and you want to look elsewhere.”

The Ghanaian believes though the decision to stay or move rests with Moses.

“It’s up to them really but they have to keep working and then everyone gets their chance,” Essien told UK’s Express.

Moses enjoyed time under former Manager Antonio Conte when he played almost all competitions for the Blues but has been greatly limited under new manager Sarri.

The Nigerian who retired from the Super Eagles earlier in the year has been linked with English clubs Crystal Palace, West Ham United but financial terms appearing to be standing between the player and switching from Stamford Bridge.

“Every player wants to play. Chelsea isn’t an easy place to come and the competition is very fierce.

“At the end of the day, all the players work but it’s the manager who will pick who he wants to play,”
