Chelsea ace Oscar: Kaka, Ronaldinho my heroes

Chelsea ace Oscar admits he had plenty of heroes to look up to growing up in Brazil.

Oscar made the move from Brazil in the summer.

"The most important for me was Kaka, because he was at Sao Paulo, where I started my career. So, he was the biggest idol for us there," he told Chelsea magazine. "Also, Ronaldinho and Ronaldo - they were the top players at the time when I started as a kid and they were already playing in Europe with top clubs.

"These are the players that we all tried to emulate. We tried to see what they would do on the pitch and then try to do it as well as them when we played. Now, I am going to work hard to do as well as they did in Europe."
