Chelsea's David Luiz: Oscar can be one of the best
David Luiz says fellow Chelsea team-mate and compatriot Oscar can be one of the best players in the world if he overcomes his shyness.
Oscar has made a big impact since his £25m move from Internacional but Luiz claims the Brazilian can get even better.
Luiz told reporters: "I try to help him every day with this [his shyness]. I tell him he's an amazing player with the talent to make the difference and change every game. I tell him to be happy and trust in his football.
"Some players need this. My job is to give confidence to the guys like Oscar.
"He is so shy but I say, 'come on, you have the quality to be in a side with the best players in the world and you have the opportunity to show that.'
"Some guys in Brazil don't, they have the quality but they don't have the opportunity to come to Europe and show the world what an amazing player they are. So, I say, 'come on, don't be shy, show your quality'.
"He is a young guy who wants to learn every day. Every game now he is more intelligent. He can grab the game and he's waiting for the moment to decide the games.
"When he first came he was so excited and wanted to do everything. With the first ball, he wanted to shoot. But now he's more mature. We need this guy for a long time at Chelsea."
