“Forget Messi, Victor Moses Is My Toughest Opponent” – Luke Shaw

Mionchester United defender Luke Shaw has named Chelsea winger Victor Moses as one of his toughest opponents.

The 24-year-old left-back has played against some of Europe’s best players since making his professional debut eight years ago – including Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo – but it is Moses who has made a lasting impression.

The Nigeria international, currently on loan at Inter Milan, was one of Chelsea’s standout performers under Antonio Conte during their 2016/17 title-winning season.

“People always think I’m joking, but one of my hardest games ever was against Victor Moses when I was coming in as a 17-year-old at Southampton,” Shaw said on United’s official website.

“Maybe because I was so young. He was really quick, direct, strong and that was a challenge for me.

“I’ve played against the likes of Gareth Bale, Messi and [Eden] Hazard, and they were all so good, but I always remember Victor Moses as a really tough opponent as well.”
