Chelsea's Oscar has backed international team-mate Neymar to shine for Barcelona next season.
Neymar agreed a £49 million deal to sign for the Catalan club earlier this summer from Santos, and will line up alongside the likes of Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta next term.
Despite suggestions from some that the Brazilian may struggle to impose himself on such a star-studded team, Oscar - who joined Chelsea from Internacional last summer - says the 21-year-old is good enough to mix it with the very best in Europe.
"I support him. Neymar deserves to be happy and will continue to play well," he told Lance.
"In Europe, when you have a good season, you are automatically considered to be one of the best players in the world.
"Hopefully this will be his opportunity and he will continue to improve."
Meanwhile, Chelsea full-back Ashley Cole says he feels as though he owes new boss Jose Mourinho a string of good performances after conceding he wasn't at his best during the Special One's first spell at Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho signed Cole for Chelsea from Arsenal in 2006 but the defender admits he still owes a debt to the ex-Real Madrid manager.
"I've won things but, from day one when I first started playing football, I've always wanted to win," he said.
"That feeling's never gone away. Having the manager back now from 2006 when he bought me, I still feel I owe him something.
"I didn't play as well as I could back then, and as well as I have for Chelsea since. I owe him a lot, personally. As a team, I hope we can go on and win many trophies. It's a big club and we need to win trophies. With the new players coming in, I think we can.
