Saul Niguez makes promise to Chelsea after 'stepping out of comfort zone'

Saul Niguez expects to improve after joining Chelsea from Atletico Madrid.

Having spent his entire career at Atleti, the 26-year-old midfielder has taken a leap by joining Chelsea on a season-long loan.

And the Spain international is confident about making his mark at Stamford Bridge in the coming months.

"The three midfielders who are playing are at a high level. It will not be easy to play, but if I put my mind to it and fight it, I can get it," Saul told Spanish internet celebrity Ibai Llanos in a conversation on Twitch.

"Chelsea has promised me to train in my position [midfield], but to play we will see. To return to certain roles that I do not play in now - that is the most important reason for my decision.

"This transfer is a step out of my comfort zone for me. I believe that you will see a new Saul in a new [better] place."
