QUARESMA JOINS CHELSEA’S TITLE RACE
I’d just like to be one of the first Chelsea fans to welcome Portuguese winger Quaresma to Chelsea. The club confirmed that Andrade Quaresma Bernardo Ricardo has joined Chelsea on loan from Italian side Inter Milan, just in time for the 7 o’ clock Blues news.
Quaresma joined Inter from Porto last summer, with Pelé moving the other way. He signed a five-year deal with Inter until 2013.
Here’s what the Inter Milan web site says about him. “Famed for his dribbling skills and his ‘trivela’, a cross or shot taken with the outside of his foot, Quaresma was nicknamed Mustang by his former coach Laszlo Bölöni for his speed and power.
At international level Quaresma won an Under-16 European Championship in 2000, making his debut for the senior national team in a friendly against Bolivia in 2003.”
