Ramires says Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti believes he can be the best ever Brazilian to play in England.

Ex-Benfica ace Ramires has made such an impression at Stamford Bridge that his team-mates have renamed him Ramidinho, a blend of Ramires and Brazilian great Ronaldinho.

Ramires told The Sun: "It gives me great satisfaction as Ronaldinho was always my idol.

"My boss at Chelsea is my No 1 fan and told me I have the chance to be the best Brazilian in the history of the Premier League.

"I knew it would take time to adapt when I arrived. No Brazilian escapes it when he comes to England.

"But now I am enjoying my best moments at Chelsea and want to keep improving and win some trophies.

"Since David Luiz joined from Benfica, I have been far happier. We shared great moments in Portugal and I am sure there will be several more here in England.

"And who knows if we will be together for a long time with the national team, too."
