Romeu loving life at Chelsea

Published Add your comment

Oriol Romeu says it is a dream come true to play for Chelsea, and revealed he was proud to walk out at Stamford Bridge when he made his UEFA Champions League debut against Genk on Wednesday evening.

The 20-year-old moved to west London from Barcelona in the summer, and was handed his first start by Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas in the 5-0 home thrashing earlier this week.

"I'm proud to play my first game in the Champions League," said Romeu. "Obviously, it's a dream for me to play with these players, with this team.

"I need to keep working, to keep training well, and then the chance will arrive. It's a dream for me. I am a young player and to play with these players, I learn a lot."


Romeu feels that the increase in Spanish contingent at Chelsea, following the arrival of himself and Juan Mata in the summer, as well as Fernando Torres in January, has helped all of them settle more quickly into life with the Blues.

"It's better for him, for Juan, for me to have here players from Spain," he continued. "We are friends so sometimes we go to dinner, to lunch.

"You can relax with them, you can speak with them and, on the pitch, I think you have a better relationship to play with them."
