Oscar thrilled with flying start to his Chelsea career
Oscar admits he has exceeded his own expectations following his impressive start to his Chelsea career
Oscar has admitted his delight at finding himself as a Chelsea first-team regular in his debut season at Stamford Bridge.
The Brazilian, who sealed a move to west London from Internacional in the summer, has already scored five goals for the Blues in 22 outings this term.
The 21-year-old announced himself to the Stamford Bridge faithful with a memorable two-goal haul in the Champions League clash with Juventus back in September.
And Oscar believes he has adapted to the rigours of English football quicker than he had envisaged.
“I started off being eased into the team, and then I started my first match in the Champions League against Juventus and scored two goals,” Oscar told Chelsea’s website.
“Since then, I have been a regular in the first team, which has been great and something I really appreciate.
“I hope this can continue so I can grow and improve with every game I play for Chelsea. I’m very happy to be wearing the Chelsea shirt and to be able to help my team-mates and win games with them, so I hope I can continue my progression in order to help the club win many trophies.
“I’m very pleased with how I’ve adapted to the move and everything, so far, is going very well.
“I get along with all of the players, which is nice, and the only problem I have is the language. However, I’m picking it up quite quickly, I’m learning and I can communicate quite well with most of my team-mates.
“Off the pitch, I enjoy living in London, so I’m very happy at the moment.”
