Meireles has revealed that the presence of fellow Portugal internationals â€“ and former manager Andre Villas-Boas â€“ at Chelsea has made his move to Stamford Bridge easier than his Anfield switch.
â€śBosingwa helped me a lot in the first few days,â€ť he said.
â€śAlso, I know Paulo Ferreira and Hilario through the national team and I worked one month with the coach at Porto last year.
â€śItâ€™s good for me that they are here to help me. Itâ€™s easier than this time last season when I went to Liverpool because I didnâ€™t know anybody then.
â€śThis way is better for me.â€ť
