Former Chelsea star Ramires: It was a pleasure working with intelligent AVB

Ramires has said that he identified most with Andre Villas-Boas among all the managers he played under at Chelsea.

The Brazilian midfielder spent six years with the Blues before joining Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning in January.

Portuguese manager Villas-Boas was in charge of the Blues in 2011/12, but he failed to last the season at the club and was sacked in March.

Speaking to Goal, Ramires said: "I had the pleasure of working with great coaches during my career, but I identified most with Andre Villas-Boas.

"We got along really well and it was great to work with him, he's a guy of enormous ability and intelligence."
