Ramires has urged Chelsea fans to move on from the Jose Mourinho era.

Ramires, 24, insists the Blues must forget about the glory days under Mourinho and allow Andre Villas-Boas, who arrived this summer, to make his own mark.

He said: "We can't cling on to something that was years ago.

"It's not by chance that Andre won three trophies last year with Porto.

"The way he treats the players is unique. He treats everyone equally, regardless of who they are or how famous they are.

"Every day he speaks to individual players and tries to help solve problems. It's hard to find someone like that. He talks and listens to what players say. That makes a difference. He's all smiles and likes to joke around.

"As a person, he's extraordinary and he's also admirable as a coach. My football has grown a lot with his arrival.

"This is the best spell of my career. He has everything to do well at Chelsea, as he's one of the best in the world."
