The goalkeeper of Chelsea, Petr Cech, has praised the new signing of the club Oscar who was the stand out performer for Chelsea against Juventus in the Champions League match played on 19th of September. Oscar scored two goals for Chelsea in that match, but, his efforts didn’t take Chelsea to victory. Juventus managed to level the scores in the second half and the match ended in a draw. Oscar was named as the man of the match for his brilliant performance.
Oscar has joined Chelsea this summer. Chelsea paid a huge transfer fee of 25 million pounds for buying Oscar from Internacional. Oscar played his first match for Chelsea against Wigan Athletic on 19th of August. That was Chelsea’s opening match of the season. Oscar substituted Eden Hazard in the 64th minute of the match.
When asked about Oscar, Cech said, “He is certainly a very good buy for us. Some people were surprised when the manager paid such a big amount for buying this youngster, but, now, he is showing the world that why Roberto De Matteo rates him so highly.”
“The club has massive expectations from him and the way he played against Juventus was amazing. That was his first start for the club and it was a high pressure game as well. But, he remained calm and put us on the driving seat. But, he was unlucky not to have ended on the winning side.”
Chelsea had won the Champions League in the last season, but, the team didn’t manage to start the competition on a winning note this time around. When asked about that, Cech said, “It’s a long tournament. We still have to play a lot of games in the competition. It was not an ideal start, but, a decent one for sure. We will definitely play better in the next matches.
