Matic targets major silverware at Chelsea

New Chelsea signing Nemanja Matic has told of his desire to win a number of major trophies upon his return to the club, Sky Sports is reporting.

Matic was with Chelsea as a youngster, but only made a handful of appearances before leaving for Benfica in 2011. Since then, the defensive midfielder has built a reputation, helping the Portuguese club to the final of the Europa League in 2013.

His performances for Benfica have forced Chelsea to splash out £21m on the Serb, and he is ambitious ahead of his second chance at Stamford Bridge. He said: "I want to win titles here. I've played regularly in a big club at Benfica, where it is not easy and there is a lot of pressure.

"In those years I learned to be a winner and play under that pressure. I developed tactically in Portugal also, training very hard and I believe I am better physically also."

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho played a key role in enticing him back to West London, and Matic cannot wait to start working under the 50-year-old, adding: "We have spoken. He said to be professional, to give my best for the team. It's exciting to work with him, he is the best coach in the world and I want to work with him for a long time. I am ready."
