Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has so far refused to rise to comments from Sir Alex Ferguson that Chelsea´s ageing squad will struggle to challenge for the title this season, but Deco - who has tasted domestic success in Portugal with Porto and in Spain with Barcelona - believes he can still continue his footballing education alongside Frank Lampard, 30 and Michael Ballack, 31.
"I still have a lot of things to learn, coming to Chelsea is a new challenge for me," said Deco, who turns 31 at the end of August. "We have a strong team and I can learn a lot from them despite being 30."
