Cuadrado: Life is good at Chelsea.

Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado moved from Fiorentina to west London in January and the Colombian winger says he is delighted to be at Chelsea.

The World Cup star has been adapting to life in the Premier League, having spent five-and-a-half-years in Serie A and has spoken about the influence of club captain John Terry and Didier Drogba.

‘Obviously they (Terry and Drogba) have experience and are very important for all of us,’ the 26-year-old is quoted saying by Chelsea's offical website.

‘We listen to them but we also have to give our own contribution. Every match is a final and we have to focus on those, be hungry and hopefully we can achieve it.’

Regarding starting life in a new a new league, after spending his previous years at Viola, he said: ‘Football language is universal.

‘Of course I need to adapt to the style, and the pace of the game is quick. There is a quick transition from defending to attacking but I am hoping to adapt as fast as possible. I just need to train hard every day.

‘I am still adapting to life here. I need to learn the language and life is different. Every country has its own culture and the weather is quite cold here, especially compared to Colombia. The people here are nice, life is good and I like the city.

‘I always do my best on the pitch. Obviously there is pressure but the important thing is to go on the pitch and play with happiness.’
