Ramires Feeling The Pressure At Chelsea

Chelsea signed the Brazilian midfielder for Benfica in the summer and Ramires has now told reporters that he feels added pressure when he plays for Chelsea.
“At Cruzeiro and Benfica, there was also huge pressure to get good results,” the 23-year-old explained. “The difference at Chelsea is that the level of visibility is so much greater. That means you’re singled out more when you play badly and there’s more hype when you play well.”

He said: “As well as being a player who tries to start moves when I have the ball, I’ve always liked a tackle, so that’swhy I’m not finding it very hard to adapt.

“I’m already getting used to the speed of the game over here.

“All I need to do now is to keep working hard to earn my spot in the side and help the team stay as successful as they’ve been in recent years.”

Frank Lampard was also out injured and Ramires got the chance to start.

“Since then, I’ve played a few times as a box-to-box midfielder, which is my original position and the same one where Mano Menezes has been using me for the national team,” he said.

“But, to be honest, it’s not hard for me to play anywhere in midfield. I’ll play whichever way Ancelotti thinks works best for the team at any given time.”
