Chelsea great Ramires has revealed he misses Chelsea and the fans will always be in his heart.

The 33 year old, who scored a memorable goal against Barcelona on our way to winning the Champions League in 2012, is now back in his native Brazil with Palmeiras.

Ramires said as quoted by Goal: “I miss London. I learnt so much living there and got along well with everyone. I miss Chelsea but the club and the fans will always be in my heart.

“I think that I got the respect of everyone because I always tried to give my best on the pitch. The English fans are thankful for that, and I admire it. It’s an honour for me to be part of Chelsea’s history.

“When I arrived at the club, I was mentally ready for the league, I had stayed in Portugal and I think that prepared me for any surprises a young footballer might have when he moved to a new country.

“Normally when you move to Europe as a young player there are a lot of things you’re confronted with but because I had already settled in Portugal, I tapped into that experience and applied it when I arrived in England.

“I also have to say that Chelsea had some really good players who welcomed new players and made them feel at home so that was really helpful.”
