Blues right-back Victor Moses has revealed that his red card against Arsenal in last season’s FA Cup final was the worst moment in his career.
Chelsea has finished outside the top four and will be ineligible for the Champions League next term but the West London club has some chance to redeem some glory by winning silverware this weekend. Manchester United will face off with Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday with either of the two English giants hoping to add a trophy to their cabinet this season.
Chelsea was also part of the FA Cup final last year but lost out to fierce local London rivals Arsenal but now have a chance to avoid the mistakes they made the last time out. And Nigerian superstar Victor Moses is hopeful to have a positive impact after seeing red at the same stage last season.
Moses Hopes To Score the Winning Goal-
In a recent interview with Goal, ahead of the FA Cup final showdown, the 27-year-old wing-back spoke of last year’s 2-1 defeat as the worst moment of his career. On his red card last season, Moses revealed his regret, “It was the worst feeling ever that I’ve experienced in my career and in a final as well. I wanted to be on the pitch to help my team-mates. It played on my mind a little bit, but apart from that it’s happened and there’s nothing I can do about it.”
Moses also added that he would dream of scoring a winning goal in the Cup final but will ensure that he puts the team before his own ambitions, “It would be a dream [to score the winning goal], but the most important thing is that it’s all about the team and the team effort. We need to work hard, stick together and, hopefully, if we can do that, we can overcome anyone.”
Moses has improved so much under Antonio Conte after being transformed from a winger to a wing-back. It has added more goals to his game and also brought in a different sense of dynamism with his high energy levels helping the whole squad.
