Pedro Rodriguez has revealed that Jose Mourinho has been urging him to become more confident as the Spaniard gradually adapts to life at Chelsea.

The 28-year-old has made seven Premier League appearances for Chelsea since arriving at Stamford Bridge from Barcelona during the summer transfer window.

He has notched up one assist and scored one goal in all competitions for the west London club so far this term and played 83 minutes as Chelsea beat Aston Villa 2-0 on Saturday.

And the attacker admits that he need to step his game up in the coming weeks and months as he looks to hold down a regular spot in Chelsea’s first team.

Pedro told Chelsea’s website: “He’s a very good manager, the best we can have to lift us out of this situation.

“He gives confidence to the players, talks a lot. That’s important for the team and for the feelings of the players.

“He wants me to give attacking depth to the team, to try and help out with defensive work as well and, to get better with confidence and take the game forward.”

Chelsea return to Champions League action with a trip to Dynamo Kyiv in Europe’s elite club competitions.

The Blues slumped to a 2-1 defeat by FC Porto in their most recent European outing.

Saturday’s win over Aston Villa left Chelsea 10 points behind leaders Manchester City.
