When asked about his future today, Moses - who cost Chelsea €11m in 2012, told Sky Sports:
"I'm a Chelsea player. I came to Liverpool to do a professional job for them but I'm going back to Chelsea at the end of the season to try and fight for my spot"
One ex-player who'll be delighted is John Aldridge, who is clearly not a fan of the attacker. In a recent column for the Liverpool Echo, Aldo labelled moses a 'flop', and accused him of looking 'disinterested' on the field. He scathed:
"He [Moses] has let himself down. There's no desire, no spirit, and he doesn’t look like he’s in the right frame of mind. He has failed to stake any type of claim [and] it might be in everyone’s best interests if the loan is cancelled"
In a recent poll, I asked fans if they agree with Aldo's assessment:
* 12200 visitors (approx) voted.
* 85% of participants agree that Moses is a flop.
Sending him back to Chelsea is absolutely the right decision. As Moses makes clear in his comment, he's a Chelsea player, and that's what's in his heart. He has no vested/emotional interest in Liverpool, and consequently, there's no burning desire to bust a gut for the club, which shows on the pitch.
There's a reason why Moses is the perennial squad player at most of the clubs he plays for: he's only good enough to be a squad player! He is not the type of player who is going to take Liverpool - or any elite club - to the next level, so it's no loss whatsoever.
The major loss here (IMO) is losing Suso for a year. The Spaniard could've stayed at Anfield and taken Moses' place in the squad, but LFC farmed him out on loan instead. Having Suso instead of Moses would've improved the squad, and the Spaniard would now have another year's experience of English football.
I just don't see the logic in sending Suso away, bringing in Moses, and spending £7m on Luis Alberto. Aaaagh - it doesn't make any sense!
Brendan Rodgers has a horrible record with loan-players, but after Sahin, Moses, and Cissokho, he'll surely get it right next time...?
