Lucas Piazon: Enjoying loan spell but eager to make an impact at Chelsea

Lucas Piazon: Enjoying loan spell but eager to make an impact at Chelsea

The 19-year-old has told the Brazilian press that he is in frequent contact with people at Chelsea after being sent out to continue his development with a year in the Dutch Eredivisie.

He was reassured by Jose Mourinho in the summer that his time in Arnhem would be beneficial and he is focused on performing to the best of his ability.

Asked about being loaned out, Piazon is quoted as telling UOL: "I think it's normal. It's hard for a player of my age to play at a big team.

"Chelsea's directors are always in touch with me and my family. I know that in order to improve I need to play for those smaller European teams.

"I hope to play for Chelsea as soon as possible, but that is up to me too, up to my performance here. I have to stay a year here and do my best.

"During the pre-season, he (Mourinho) said the kids would be loaned out as the squad was too strong and too big.

"It's actually better so that we can play most games. But he talked with me and assured me it would be good for me."

Questioned about a return to Brazilian football, Piazon insisted that it was better for him to stay in Europe away from the limelight.

He explained: "Pressure is much bigger in Brazil, so I think this is a good thing about Holland and Europe as a whole. We can play with a clear head."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

H

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
