Widespread fears that Chelsea of England winger, Victor Moses could be left out of the club’s UEFA Europa League squad this season have been laid to rest, as the out-of-favour star has been confirmed for this season’s second-tier continental competition.
Worries had risen high among Nigerian fans that the recent bench-warming role Moses has been forced to endure at Chelsea could see him miss out on The Blues’ continental squad list, but his London club have now confirmed him for the competition.
This comes after European football governing body, UEFA published squad lists for all the teams participating in this season’s Europa League.
England’s Emirates FA Cup winners, Chelsea included Moses in their List A containing the names and jersey numbers of 23 players that will take part in the competition.
The squad has two goalkeepers, nine defenders, seven midfielders and five strikers, with Moses included to don the same jersey No.15 he is now famous with at Stamford Bridge.
Despite losing his place with The Blues this season, Moses has been efficient in the Europa League, with four goals in six matches during the 2012-2013 season.
Back then, Moses was in top form and helped Chelsea reach the final but was an unused substitute in the showpiece against Benfica of Portugal.
For this season’s contest, Chelsea are drawn with BATE Borisov, PAOK and MOL Vidi in Group L, for which The Blues’ coach, Maurizio Sarri expected to rotate his squad, and the 27-year-old Moses is expected to be handed playing opportunities in the Europa League.
