Just minutes after signing for the Reds, Moses was eager to talk about his move to Anfield, where he will spend a season long loan.
How do you feel about your move to Liverpool?
“First and foremost, I’m delighted to have made the loan from Chelsea to a big club like Liverpool. The most important thing is for me to be professional about it and I’m here to do a job for the club. The target is to get into the top four and for the club to compete in the Champions League – and I’m delighted to be here.”
The fans have already seen you play in the Premier League, but what do you think you can bring to Liverpool?
“As I said, this is a massive club and I’ve come in to try and help my new teammates and the team. The players have been doing great – I went to watch them play on Sunday and the atmosphere was incredible. The fans were great and seeing them beat Manchester United was great for me coming into the club. They’ve won three out of three, have nine points and are at the top, so we just want to keep the momentum going.”
After watching the game yesterday were you reassured that you had made the right move?
“It’s definitely the right move – this is a massive club with all the history. The club has come a long way and it’s great to be here and to be playing for Liverpool. I’m delighted to be here and I just want to enjoy my football.”
What do you think it will be like to play in front of the Anfield crowd?
“The atmosphere was incredible against Manchester United and the fans were great. They were singing right from the start until the end. It’ll be proud for me to play out on the pitch. I want to do well for the club, score goals and help the team.”
What type of player do you think you are?
“I’ll just try to work hard, help the team and try to score and create goals.”
Do you feel like a loan move was a good option?
“As a young footballer coming up, I just want to play games. Not playing games can really damage your career. Liverpool is a massive club and I just want to enjoy my football out on the pitch and try to help my teammates.”
What has Rodgers told you of his plans for you?
“I spoke to him yesterday. He’s a great manager and he’s done fantastically well here helping the lads. When I spoke to him, he told me what I’m going to be doing here. I was really pleased with that and I’m looking forward to working with him. He’s been a great manager at whatever club he’s been at – and he’s came here and proven that.”
What have you learned from your time at Chelsea?
“The move to Chelsea was a massive step for me. I just wanted to go there, express myself and enjoy my football. Being at Chelsea was one of the best times for me, but coming to Liverpool is another step for me.”
Did you talk to your former Chelsea teammate Daniel Sturridge about the move?
“Yes, I spoke to Studge and he wanted me to come here. He said I’d love it here, but he didn’t need to say much. The next morning, I had a word with my agent and told him it could be the right move for me. As I’ve said, it’s a massive club with great history. The club is doing well, so I wanted to come here and enjoy my football. It’s been great – I’ve been here since yesterday and everyone has been looking after me.”
Daniel has been terrific since joining Liverpool, would you like to make a similar impact?
“Daniel is a great player and at the moment is probably the best striker in the Premier League – he’s scoring goals, he’s got good vision and enjoys his football out on the pitch. That’s the most important as a player – to enjoy yourself. Daniel’s certainly doing that at the moment. I just want to come here, help my teammates however I can to try and get into the top four, and get as many games as I can at the same time.”
Are you looking forward to playing with Steven Gerrard, Philippe Coutinho and Luis Suarez?
“I’m definitely looking forward to it. I watched a few matches before I came here and they’ve done fantastically well. I can’t wait to start training with them and gel into the team and get to know everyone.”
Do you think Brendan Rodgers style of football will suit you?
“Yes, definitely. The manager has done very well and the formation and players here will help me and I just want to gel in, get to know the players and play with them. There are a lot of quality players here -they’re winning games and creating chances. It’s a massive thing for me to be here.”
