Oscar has made a great start to life at Chelsea since completing a reported £25 million move from Internacional in the summer, and hopes to get even better over the coming years at Stamford Bridge.
That’s the self-assessment from the 21-year-old after impressing peers and critis alike in west London under Roberto Di Matteo, with a brace against Juventus in the Champions League the undoubted high thus far.
Recent starts against Arsenal and Norwich City suggest the nine-cap Brazil international is learning quickly on the King’s Road, and Oscar is happy to admit that his rapid Premier League rise has been a bit of a whirlwind at Chelsea.
"I did not expect it to be so fast. Of course I'm still in a period of adaptation, but Chelsea is a great club with great players. My teammates are helping me a lot in the process," he said ahead of the Selecao’s international matches against Iraq and Japan.
"I've grown up a lot in recent games because they are teaching me. The team also helped me take the first step in English football. Hopefully everything continues well. Chelsea has given good things to me."
Oscar began his career Sao Paulo in 2009, but moved to the Beira-Rio after just a season. And, after two years with Inter, Chelsea made their big-money move for the player.
With the youngster’s midfield influence dramatically on the rise under Di Matteo, it could well be a season - and career - to remember for the player.
