Lucas Piazon switched from Brazilian club São Paulo to Chelsea in summer of 2011, after a dominant showing in the South American U17 Football Championship where he aided Brazil to a 10th title.
The Brazilian had been likened to Brazil legend Kaka, but has so far failed to live up with the legend, and has blamed his differing loan spells as the cause of everything.
The 24-year-old who is now on loan with Fulham said: “I was very young when I left for the first time. So I found the switch to Spain [with Málaga] smooth, because the language was easy, it would be only be a six months spell, the team was playing in the Champions League. It was super smooth.”
“Then, in the Netherlands [with Vitesse], the experience was also good. My first six months were very good.”
“It was after going to Germany [to join Eintracht Frankfurt] that I got fed up with moving. Switching places so often is also not ideal. Having to adapt to a new playing style, a new team. So I wanted to stay in England.”
“I went to Reading and I am already two years here in Fulham, so it is easier. It is best to have a long loan.”
“Those were new experiences. I learned a bit in each place, and took the most from the teams and the countries.”
