Victor Moses says he is not rushing back to football as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

The Chelsea wing-back suffered the injury, which turned out to be more serious than the club first thought, against Crystal Palace last month.

And although he admits it’s been frustrating watching from the sidelines, the Nigeria international says he cannot afford to risk causing further injury by returning earlier than expected.

“The rehab has been going very well and hopefully I can just take my time to get myself as fit as possible to go back out there and enjoy my football again,” Moses said.

“It is always frustrating when you watch the lads and you want to go in there yourself to try to help, to do the best you can to help the lads.

“Apart from that, it is always frustrating to watch from the sidelines when you just want to go out there and play football. You have to be disciplined, you don’t get to spend much time with the players. I am always by myself with the physio, trying to concentrate on my rehab to get back as quickly as possible.”
