Chelsea defender Bruma happy to play poorly in Holland

Chelsea defender Jeffrey Bruma is aware of the hype in Holland over his progress.

The likes of Marco van Basten and Ruud Gullit have tipped Bruma for big things in the Dutch media..

But after a disappointing performance against Ajax early in preseason, Bruma was actually relieved. He explained: "It was a bad match for me that day, against Ajax.

"Not just for Chelsea, but also for myself. It was good that I had an off day for once. To the outside world it is perhaps good to see that once again I am just a man."
