Joao Felix, a recent addition to Chelsea, has mentioned Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, and Eden Hazard as three non-Portuguese Blues players he admires.
Wednesday saw the loan transfer of Felix from Atletico Madrid to Chelsea.
The representative of Portugal will stay at Stamford Bridge for the end of the current campaign.
Since there was no option to purchase in his contract with Chelsea, it is anticipated that he will play for Atletico Madrid again the following year.
Felix responded in a video posted on the team’s website on Wednesday when asked about former Chelsea players: “Chelsea guys that I remember, I can name Portuguese players: Deco, Ricardo Carvalho, Paulo Ferreira, and [Raul] Meireles.
He added, “But there are other players that are not Portuguese that I like too, like [Eden] Hazard, Frank Lampard, [Didier] Drogba.”
