Papy Djilobodji: This is what I will bring to the Chelsea team this season


Chelsea defender Papy Djilobodji says he is ready to listen to the advice of boss Jose Mourinho in order to secure a regular place at the club.

The Senegalese moved to Stamford Bridge from Nantes for £4m and agreed a four-year contract with the club.

The Blues conceded nine goals in their first four league games and together with Michael Hector the 26-year-old will give new options to the Chelsea manager.

"I am a defender and I want to do my job well, which is to defend well and to not let things get past me," Djilobodji told Chelsea's official website.

"Technically-speaking I am making a lot of progress. From this point onwards I am going to be looking for advice from the manager and implement what he advises me to do and what my team-mates want me to do.

"Playing as part of a group like this you're a team and you can't be doing your own thing, so I need to integrate myself and let other people help me integrate so we can work together towards winning things, which is what this club is all about.

"The quality of [English] football is always really high.

"People have told me I have an English style of play, and what I'm going to do is keep adapting my style of play so I can play like everyone here.

"Football is a sport that when you're playing you're giving joy to the people watching, so I want to give it everything I have got to give that pleasure to everyone at the club and to our supporters."
