Chelsea cause to come first for Oscar

28 July 2012 10:22

New Chelsea signing Oscar says he is happy to play anywhere manager Roberto Di Matteo needs him during his first season in England.

The 20-year-old Brazilian sealed a 25 million-pound switch from Internacional this month, and joins fellow new recruits Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Marko Marin at Stamford Bridge.

Despite finishing sixth last season, Chelsea qualified for the Champions League courtesy of their penalty shootout victory over Bayern Munich in the final of the competition, and Oscar has spoken of his desire to play a big part in the 2012/13 campaign.

"This is a dream for me. After the Olympics I am going to talk to the manager," he told reporters.

"I am ready to do whatever the manager wants me to do.

"For Internacional I played in several different positions, so I have no problem adapting."

After watching Chelsea pick up both the European Cup and FA Cup last season, Oscar is also hoping to win some silverware during his stay in west London.

"I'm joining Chelsea hopefully to win more titles," he said.

"The project is very exciting, especially with the young players that they are signing.

"The offer was very good for me and I didn't have to think twice about signing.

"I am good friends with David Luiz, there's also Ramires and Lucas Piazon playing for Chelsea, so they will help me adapt."

Oscar is part of the Under-23 Brazil squad taking part in the London 2012 Olympics, and played a crucial role in his country's impressive opening victory over Egypt.

However, despite the win, Oscar feels his side must improve if they are to win gold.

"It is always hard at the start in a competition like this," he said.

"We made some mistakes which we cannot make. We have to improve this. Our team is growing after every game.

"My performance was good as I picked up two assists. I did what I usually do on the pitch and I tried to help my team as much as possible.

"I hope that I will continue like this."
