Even as Chelsea officially announced Victor Moses’ t switch to Inter Milan on loan, Inter Milan has handed the Nigerian wing back the jersey number 11. It was the same shirt number that Nwankwo Kanu had in 1996 when he joined the San Siro side.
Moses later took photographs against the background of pictures depicting Nigeria’s former players at Inter – Nwankwo Kanu and Victor Moses.
According to Chelsea’s official website,Victor Moses will spend the remainder of the 2019/20 season on loan at Inter Milan having returned to Chelsea from his temporary spell in Turkey with Fenerbahce.
The move sees the 29-year-old link up once again with former Blues head coach Antonio Conte after the pair won the Premier League title together at Stamford Bridge in 2016/17, as well as the FA Cup the following term.
Moses has spent the past year in Istanbul, featuring 22 times and scoring most recently on the opening day of the Super Lig campaign in a 5-0 win against Gazisehir, although injury has kept him sidelined since the end of November.
The Nigerian netted four times in 16 appearances during the 2018/19 season. Fenerbahce are currently fourth in the Turkish league, two points off a Champions League qualification place.
His previous loan spells since arriving in west London in the summer of 2012 include Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United. The Nigerian international has 128 Chelsea appearances and 18 goals to his name.
He joins an Inter Milan side currently second in Serie A, trailing the leaders by two points. Juventus, managed this season by another former Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri, are top, having won the Serie A title in each of the past eight seasons.
Inter Milan will play Bulgarian side Ludogorets in the Europa League knockout round when European competition resumes next month.
