Chelsea midfielder Oscar: First season here has been dramatic!

Oscar admits his first season at Chelsea has been a culture shock.

His debut season has seen Roberto Di Matteo sacked, protests against interim boss Rafa Benitez, and the Mark Clattenburg affair.

He said: "I didn't expect my first season here to be so dramatic. I hope next season can be more steady!

"But in Brazil it's normal to have such dramatic ups and downs all the time. There, the fans put a lot more pressure on the players.

"When you win, you are adored. When you lose, you are hated, and managers change quite a lot.

"But playing here doesn't really compare to the pressure of playing for Brazil because we've won the World Cup five times."
