Chelsea attacker Armando Broja admits Vitesse loan surpassing expectations

Chelsea attacker Armando Broja says his loan with Vitesse Arnhem has surpassed expectations.

Vitesse meet Ajax today in the final of the KNVB Cup.

Broja told the Chelsea website: "It's been going really well so far. Obviously it's different going from playing Academy football to professional football and it's a major step up so you have to mature really fast and grow up. I'm trying to develop and mature as much as possible, to become a better footballer and a better person.

"I still want to do more and hopefully this weekend we can win some silverware to make the season that much better."

"The new coach has brought in new players and new members of staff so things have really changed at the club. There's a different philosophy and we really want to play attacking football, which is great for me as a striker because we like to press high and win the ball back quickly.

"We're fourth right now and still battling for second place [Champions League qualification] because we're only five points off it. We're not too far away and hopefully we can continue our good form into the last few games in the league."
