Oscar: I want to become Chelsea legend like Lampard and Terry

Chelsea star Oscar has revealed his desire to follow in the footsteps of Blues legends Frank Lampard and John Terry at the club.

The 21-year-old Brazilian has started three out of Chelsea’s last four games in all competitions, since hitting a brace on his Champions League debut against Juventus a fortnight ago.

Now with a regular starting berth, the ambitious youngster has set himself the ultimate challenge of becoming a Stamford Bridge icon in the future, like Lampard and Terry.

He told the Daily Mirror: "I hope to have the same path as Lampard and Terry here at Chelsea.

"They have a great career at the club and are very important for the squad. They are big idols."

The £25 million summer signing believes that his superb performance against Juventus has made Chelsea fans see him in a new light, so Oscar is now aiming to maintain these standards.

"They [the English] will certainly follow me more closely now," he added.

"When I played against Juventus, whenever I touched the ball, people looked at me in a different way. I hope I keep playing at a high level here."

Oscar will be looking to recreate this performance when the Blues take on FC Nordsjaelland at Copenhagen's Parken Stadium this evening.
