Victor Moses: Liverpool man wants regular football after joining on loan

The Nigeria international moved to Anfield on loan from Chelsea in the summer, but he has started just five league games since his move, with his last coming over a month ago.

"The main thing is to be on the pitch and enjoy my football," he told the Daily Mirror.

"That's always been on my mind - to play games.

"There was only a little spell at Wigan, when I first signed there, when I wasn't in the team every week.

"I've always gone to places for the football - places where I'm going to play. By playing, you learn.

"It may seem I've been around for a long time, but I'm still only 22. I think I can develop a lot more, but I realise to achieve that I've got to play as much as possible."

Despite his frustration with his lack of game time, Moses insists he is more than happy learning under Brendan Rodgers.

"He's a great manager to play under," he said. "He's very clear with the players. He knows what he wants us to do.

"There's a winning mentality, but he also realises that if we are enjoying ourselves, we're likely to do better.

"I've known him since I was 16 - when I was at Palace and he was at Chelsea.

"He really wanted me to go there. I said no a few times. I thought Palace was the best place for me at that time. But he never forgot about me.

"I was delighted when he came in for me again. There were a few clubs interesting in taking me, but when I heard about Liverpool, my decision was made straightaway.

"I wanted to be at a club that is fighting for trophies.

"There's a lot of quality here and if we can keep the momentum going, I think we can challenge for the Premier League and, if not, finish in the top four.

"You have to believe you can be the best, otherwise there's no point in trying."

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
