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