Chelsea signing Moses: Colin Pates my junior coach!

Victor Moses admits his football has long been influenced by Chelsea.

The former Wigan Athletic winger signed for Chelsea last week and revealed his former junior coach was ex-Blues captain Colin Pates.

"He is a great man. He always used to talk to me and tell me about when he used to play and how I needed to be more professional about my football," Moses told

"He is a person you can call on and he will advise you in the right way. When we played with the school team he used to teach us all about movement and finishing and he was great to work with. We won a national school tournament when he was our manager."
