Nigeria’s Victor Moses listed in Liverpool’s worst signings

Liverpool had signed the current Inter Milan right-back from opponents Chelsea on a season-long loan deal before the 2013/14 season.

During his time at Anfield, he played in the left midfield role, scoring one goal in 19 appearances.

In a list composed by talkSPORT, they added the Nigerian to a list of players who did not live up to expectations under Brendan Rodgers.

After his poor performance, he was not able to get a permanent deal that would see him remain at Anfield; so he returned to Chelsea.

Commenting on Moses’ time at Anfield, talkSPORT.com wrote,

“It seemed unthinkable for Chelsea to let a decent player in Moses play for rivals Liverpool on loan in the 2013/14 season.

“However, any concerned Chelsea fan needn’t have worried as Moses really struggled to make an impact in a season on Merseyside.

“Moses scored on his Reds debut, a well-placed finish at Swansea, but that was his only goal for Liverpool,” it wrote.

“Those slightly more obsessive Kopites will remember Moses essentially missing an open goal with a fresh air shot on that infamous ‘Crystanbul’ night where Liverpool blew a 3-0 lead to draw at Crystal Palace,” it said.

“It was 3-3 when Moses missed but if that went in they would have won the match and maybe; just maybe, Liverpool could have lifted the title that season…”

Other players on the list are Mario Balotelli, Christian Benteke, Alberto Moreno, Adam Bogdan, Javier Manquillo, Dejan Lovren; Tiago Ilori; Alberto Moreno; Luis Alberto, Nuri Sahin and Lazar Markovic
