Oscar full of praise for Chelsea manager Mourinho as he reiterates his future is at Stamford Bridge
Oscar has put an end to speculation over his future, started by one of his international team mates, by stating that he would like to make history with Chelsea like Didier Drogba did.
The 22-year-old took Drogba’s famous 11 shirt when he signed from Internacional and admits he would like to follow the Ivorian in making history at Stamford Bridge.
The Brazilian told the Daily Star Sunday: “Didier was always an idol. I'd watched him lots on the TV and then suddenly I was wearing the same Chelsea jersey he always wore. I feel very proud about that.
"But I am writing my own story. I have my own style and hopefully I will be able to have my own great story at Chelsea - just like he did."
After a blistering start to the season Oscar’s form has dipped, somewhat predictably considering the vast amount of games he’s played, and manager José Mourinho has listed the Brazilian as a sub in two of their last five games.
Oscar understands the need to “alternate” though and has praised the Blues boss for improving him.
"José has shown me I can be one of the best,” Oscar stated. "The manager has given me this confidence and I have grown better and better under him.
“Now I just hope I can keep on getting better and win titles with him at the end of the season.
"The team is top of the Premier League and the manager has his own way of playing. He alternates quite a bit because we have a lot of games. But that's normal. I'm playing well at Chelsea and am in my prime right now."
