New Chelsea signing, Papy Djilobodij who signed from French Ligue One club Nantes during the summer transfer window, has spoken about his move to current Premier League champions Chelsea, and on how he will need to up and adapt his game to the new challenge of the Premier League.
“I am really happy to be a Chelsea player. I have come here to learn and to go to higher places with the club, and to win trophies as well”
“I want to show all my qualities and skills not just to the manager and the players, but also to the supporters”
“I am a defender and I want to do my job well, which is to defend well and to not let things get past me.
“Technically-speaking I am making a lot of progress. From this point onwards I am going to be looking for advice from the manager and implement what he advises me to do and what my team-mates want me to do.
“Playing as part of a group like this you’re a team and you can’t be doing your own thing, so I need to integrate myself and let other people help me integrate so we can work together towards winning things, which is what this club is all about.
“The quality of football is always really high. People have told me I have an English style of play, and what I’m going to do is keep adapting my style of play so I can play like everyone here.
“Football is a sport that when you’re playing you’re giving joy to the people watching, so I want to give it everything I have got to give that pleasure to everyone at the club and to our supporters.”
The Sengalese international has been left out of Chelsea and Mourinho’s challenge for the Champions League, and only time will tell for Papy and whether or not he can adapt.
