It was all smiles at the Stamford Bridge stadium in London on Wednesday, March 1 2017 when Super Eagles striker, Victor Moses, extended his contact by two years with Premier League leader, Chelsea.
The new extended contact is worth £75,000-a-week, which is a significant pay rise to his previous £45,000-a-week wages, after becoming a crucial member of Antonio Conge’s table-topping team. The contract ends 2021.
Moses has performed superbly at right-back, following Conte’s successful switch to a 3-4-3 formulation that transformed Chelsea’s season.
The 26-year-old was sent on loan for three successive seasons by former manager José Mourinho, to Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United, having joined Chelsea from Wigan in 2012.
An elated Moses said: “I’ve always wanted to play for this big club, it’s one of the best clubs in the world at the moment and I ‘m enjoying every single minute.”
Chelsea technical director, Michael Emenalo, said:” We are extremely pleased Victor has chosen to extend his contract with us. He is enjoying an excellent season and, under Antonio’s leadership, has proved to be an important member of the squad.”
