Moses’s time at Chelsea looked to be up after being farmed out to Liverpool, Stoke and West Ham in the past three seasons.
But he has proven his class to new Blues boss Antonio Conte after being given a chance at wing-back in the club’s new 3-4-3 formation.
His rampaging runs down the flank have impressed in Chelsea’s run of ten straight top flight wins.
However Moses’s youth coach in Nigeria, Douglas Idahosa, says Conte has got it wrong.
“When Moses was at Crystal Palace, the difference I noticed is that they converted him to a winger.
“I would have preferred him to be a top striker which he used to be at BJ Foundation, ” he told All Nigeria Soccer.

“Moses was the captain of my Under-13 team. He was an excellent striker that could score many goals.
“Now I have not seen him score the type of goals he used to score with my youth team.
“I think he has become more of a winger not a fullback.”
The Eagles gave the Nigeria international his debut in 2007, before selling him to Wigan for £2.5m in 2010.
Chelsea signed him from the Latics for £9m in August 2012.
