Hughes Tips Moses to Shine Again, as Chelsea Striker Joins Stoke CityFeatured, Latest News, News, Sports Tuesday, August 19th, 2014
Stoke City boss Mark Hughes insists new signing Victor Moses was not to blame for his unfortunate season at Liverpool.
The Super Eagles forward has joined the Potters on a season-long loan from Chelsea and could make his debut against Hull on Sunday.
Moses arrives with a point to prove after flopping while on loan at Anfield last season – making just half-a-dozen league starts.
Hughes said: “He hasn’t played a great deal in the last couple of seasons, so he wants to play and he will be given that opportunity.
“We feel he’s a player that can give us power and give us pace and we’ve probably lacked that a bit”
“It’s up to him if he takes it and I’m sure he will.
“They (Liverpool) found a way of playing they stuck to and he was left out.
“I don’t think it was his fault, he just didn’t get back into the team. That can happen when you go to a big club.”
Hughes admits he was surprised to be able to land Moses and confirmed his arrival all but ends their interest in Nathan Redmond and Oussama Assaidi.
“We’re pleased we’ve been able to get him in,” said Hughes. “We didn’t think we would have that opportunity.
“That’s probably all our business done now. We feel he’s a player that can give us power and give us pace and we’ve probably lacked that a bit.”
