Ramires delighted with his progress at Chelsea

Ramires is delighted with the progress of his career at Chelsea.

The former Benfica midfielder impressed in victory at his old club last night.

Ramires told the London Evening Standard: "I am very happy because when I arrived here I set myself goals to reach and I have reached them, which was to earn a new contract.

"But I am not going to stop there because the next thing I want to do is start winning trophies with Chelsea and make this club bigger and better than they ever have been.

"On a personal level everything is going well. I'm more adapted this year than last year.

"I understand the English game better, my team-mates, how we play, so that helps me with the timing of my runs and gives me more chances to score goals.

"On a team level we're still far away from our objectives because our aim is to always win titles but, hopefully, we can turn this around and start fulfilling our goals."
