Antonio Conte praises Victor Moses for settling well at Inter Milan

Inter Milan manager, Antonio Conte has showered praises on Victor Moses for how he settled quite well at the club.

Victor Moses joined the Italian Serie A side on loan from Chelsea in January with an option to remain at the club by the end of the season.

The former Super Eagles International featured in the game against AC Milan and was impressive to the point of providing an assist.

"Both Ashley Young and Victor Moses, because they are wing-backs, don’t need quite so much guidance in training. Plus Moses already played with me at Chelsea," Conte told Sky Sport Italia.

"For midfielders, it’s more complicated, as I always ask something pre-planned and memorised for both attacking and defending moves. Christian knows football well, he reads it, but also is not quite at 100 per cent fitness.

"I had thought about using Eriksen behind Lukaku, but then decided not to transform things too much, as it’s important for us to play with the two strikers.

"Eriksen also had this issue dragging on with Tottenham, coming and going, so that takes a lot out of you. I’ve been a player, I know, it’ll take him a little while to settle."

"It was a special night, that's for sure," Conte told Sky Sport Italia after Inter came from 2 down to win AC Milan 4-2 and go top of the Italian league standings.. "The first half saw us in real difficulty, perhaps more than we've ever been this season, and there was the risk of a hammering.

"Instead, we did well to get the balance back, to understand where we had to improve, to have faith in what we were doing and the credit goes to these lads.

"Aside from the result, I am happy to see them resist under blows and turn it around, as that means they are preparing for something truly important.

"It's still very early to talk about something we can for now dream of. We can have a dream."
