Bertrand Traore: Impressed during Chelsea's tour of Asia

The 18-year-old agreed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Jose Mourinho's side back in October and is now a Chelsea player following the opening of the transfer window.

Traore, who made his international debut for Burkina Faso at the age of 15, joins from Association Jeunes Espoirs De Bobo-Dioulasso in his homeland.

Traore impressed as a trialist on Chelsea's tour of Asia in the summer, appearing in all three games and scoring twice.

"It was a good experience with all the senior players and I learned a lot from them," Traore recalled on Chelsea's website.

"I was very proud, so it was a dream for me to be there every day and playing games. Of course I was a little bit nervous but after two or three days I was okay.

"On the pitch I was comfortable, I wasn't nervous once I was on the pitch. Jose Mourniho spoke a lot during training and he is one of the best managers, maybe the best in the world. He is a very good person and it is a dream for me to work with him. I can now say I am living a dream.

"I'm an attacking midfielder. I can play in the number 10 position, I can play on the wings and I'm good on the ball. I can shoot well and am strong in a one v one situation, so I can score goals."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
