“He never spoke to me. I thought in my head, “He’s got his own players already,” Moses told ESPN.
“I think we chatted a couple of times on the phone – he asked if I was alright at Liverpool, but that was it.’
The 25-year-old has thrived in a wing back role at Chelsea under new manager Antonio Conte.
“The manager who is here now is giving everyone a chance – even the young lads,” Moses added.

“I’m pleased that he’s here and I’ve just got to go out there and enjoy my football. As long as you work hard, the manager will see it and he’ll give you an opportunity.
‘When the new manager came in, I just wanted to see how it went. It’s a blessing for me that he enjoys the way I play and appreciates the effort I put in. It gives you a lot of confidence when the manager believes in you.”
Moses has made seven league appearances for Chelsea so far this season with two goals.
