Despite being the newest member of Chelsea´s over 30 club, Deco insists he still has plenty to offer to help the Blues dethrone Barclays Premier League champions Manchester United this season.

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."
