The Brazilian is enjoying life in Spain and settled well.
"Coming to Málaga was the best option. It was a completely different atmosphere at Chelsea as there was a lot of pressure, and much more difficult for a young player like me to get the chance to play football.
"Málaga was definitely the best opportunity for me. I'm really keen to get out on the pitch, and improve as much as I can.
"The style of play, focusing on possession and not so much on force Spanish football is similar to how we play in Brazil.
"I really enjoy playing this type of game, and feel much more comfortable on the pitch."
