“I am very happy to be here, but also nervous as I hope to play as soon as possible. It was an easy decision to make. I saw the quality of the group of Chelsea, and I was happy under the orders of Mourinho in the past. So when the opportunity presented itself, I was delighted to grasp it,” he entrusted for his first words on the official website of the Blues.
