Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech hailed Oscar’s wonder goal against Juventus this week.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech hailed Oscar’s wonder goal against Juventus this week.

Cech enjoyed the view of Oscar’s top billing and even dared to wonder if he would turn out to be as good as his compatriot Kaka.

“He plays great football, simple one-touch and two-touch stuff, and he always wants the ball,” said the Chelsea keeper.

“He has a pretty big price-tag on him for such a guy, and that’s an extra pressure. So it’s great for him we’ve seen such a fantastic performance, and those goals will give him a lot of ­confidence.

“People will realise he is great value. Only time will tell if he is going to be like Kaka, but he is certainly on a very good path.

“He has settled in quite quickly and you can see he is worth the money the club spent. It’s a pretty good set-up here for him to go on and become a great player.”
