Van Ginkel delighted with performance in Chelsea win

Chelsea midfielder Marco van Ginkel was delighted to start in victory over Inter Milan in the US.

Van Ginkel has so far figured in each of Chelsea's games this summer, and has fitted in well with energetic and combative displays.

"These are my qualities," he told chelseafc.com. "I think in the first half was easier to do my job, defending my midfielder who came deep a lot, but in the second half there were more spaces to attack and run past my opponent, which I also enjoy doing.

"I feel very fit. After 60 minutes I felt nothing in my legs, so that's good, and it's because we have trained well, trained hard, and I feel ready to go. I don't know what will happen on Sunday in the next match against AC Milan, the coach has to decide, but I feel I can do more which is a positive sign."
