The 29-year-old has spoken of his admiration for the Italian tactician and hopes his side can make him happy by clinching the European title
Victor Moses revealed Inter Milan players want to win the 2019-20 Europa League for their manager Antonio Conte.
The Italian tactician has never won the highly coveted European trophy either as a player or as a coach despite his numerous accolades he has gathered during his career.
The former Nigeria international starred under Conte at Premier League side Chelsea , winning Premier League and FA Cup titles.Moses reunited with the Italian tactician in January after cutting short his 18-month loan with Turkish Super Lig side Fenerbahce .
The forward has made 19 appearances across all competitions, including four in the European tournament since his arrival at San Siro.
Moses, who won the Europa League title during his time at Stamford Bridge, is hoping to help Conte clinch the diadem for the first time in his career.
“He’s a passionate coach who plans ahead. He wants us to give 110 per cent in every game,” Moses told Inter Podcast.
“Then you see his reactions during the games, along with those of his staff. We want to play and win for him, but in the end, we want to enjoy our football.
“In the end, we are here to play football, that’s the most important thing. We are professionals.”
Having already landed in Germany for their Europa League final against Sevilla at RheinEnergieStadion, Moses stated he is enjoying the atmosphere in the country ahead of the all-important clash.
“These days are quite different. But we are enjoying the days in Germany, also because we are winning. I like to relax and spend time for myself. As a footballer, you need it,” he added.
Moses’ loan deal is expected to end in the 2019-20 season but Inter Milan are believed to be interested in securing his signature permanently.
The forward had 38 caps and 12 goals for the Nigeria national team before his retirement from international duty after the 2018 World Cup in
Russia .
Moses was a prominent figure for the Super Eagles as they won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in
South Africa under the guidance of Stephen Keshi.
The winger has also previously featured on loan for
Liverpool , Stoke City, West Ham United and Fenerbahce since joining Chelsea in the summer of 2012 from Crystal Palace . Moses impressed by Conte’s passionate reactions at Inter Milan

West Ham United manager David Moyes and two of the club’s players have tested positive for coronavirus.
The Premier League club were informed of the positive tests while preparing for Tuesday’s Carabao Cup tie against Hull City at London Stadium.
Moyes, 57, defender Issa Diop, 23, and 24-year-old midfielder Josh Cullen will now be required to self-isolate.
“The manager and both players immediately left the stadium and have returned home,” said a club statement.
West Ham said the three men were all asymptomatic and assistant manager Alan Irvine took charge of the Hull match, which both Diop and Cullen were due to start.
Public Health England guidelines state those with Covid-19 should self-isolate for at least 10 days, meaning Moyes, Diop and Cullen will not be able to attend training or the league game against Wolverhampton Wanderers on 27 September.
BBC Radio 5 Live’s John Southall said the trio travelled to the ground with the squad in two or three separate coaches.
“They say they all social distanced, the squad, from when they met up and throughout the journey,” he said.
“As soon as they arrived, the results from the tests done yesterday came through and the two players and the manager were isolated immediately in separate rooms and left the ground very quickly, I’m told.
“West Ham say they are satisfied nobody else in the squad needs to self-isolate and that is why the game went ahead.”
The news comes after Leyton Orient v Tottenham Hotspur in the EFL Cup third round on Tuesday was called off because a number of the home players had contracted coronavirus.
It came on the day the government announced a raft of new coronavirus restrictions for England which could last for up to six months.
As part of the stricter rules, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has confirmed plans for fans to return to watch live sport events in England from 1 October will not go ahead.
Sports bodies have been told not to expect spectators at stadiums and venues until the end of March at the earliest.

“ All we want is the seven players that are out to come back , ” he said .
“ Now we have a competition that we cannot spend the energy that we spent today , before Leicester ( on Sunday) , so we ’ re going to play mostly academy players and try to keep the energy for the Premier League .
“ With this lack of preparation and seven players out and not coming back soon , we have to keep the players from Monday as safe as possible .
“ We will see how many are available , how they recover . We have just three days . We won the Carabao ( League ) Cup three times in a row and we would like to continue but we don’ t have the players in this period to play every three days . ”
