Chelsea youngster Lucas Piazon excited by his progress

Chelsea youngster Lucas Piazon is delighted with his progress over the last 12 months.

The former Sao Paulo prospect is now seeing first team action for Chelsea.

"When I arrived I started in the reserve squad and I was playing so many games in the youth team to get adapted to English football," he told, "and I think this was very important for me. Now I have been playing with the first team, the most important moment in my career, so the youth team and the reserves helped me a lot to be where I am now.

"In America I could score a goal which was nice and this pre-season is important for the youngsters to get a chance to play, and for Chelsea to be able to give us a chance. I really enjoyed the tour and it was a great experience in my life."
