Oscar: Why I Was Happy To Leave Chelsea

Published

on

Brazil midfielder, Oscar, has clarified the reason for his choice leave to Chelsea and join Shanghai SIPG in a Mega-cash move amid the January transfer window and he revealed that it was not about the cash.

“The financial aspect was important, but it’s not all about money,” he told Four Four Two.

“The city where you live is very important. I’m not going by myself, I have my wife and kids, so the city must be nice and Shanghai has all we need. The financial aspect was important, but it’s not all about money”

“I wasn’t playing that much for Chelsea recently as well. So when I heard about their interest I was just happy to go.”

The 25-year-old has been highly criticised for his career viewpoint over the move, with many scrutinising the low standard of football China offers. In any case, the midfielder demands he didn’t go to the Far East without giving it some genuine thought.

“Very hard,” he said when asked how difficult it was to leave Chelsea.

“I played there for five years; I arrived as a young boy and experienced so many nice moments with the club. I have a lot of respect for the supporters and the club itself.

“Beyond that, I knew people would be surprised to see a 25-year-old leaving the Premier League for Chinese football. But I can’t decide my life on what other people think.”
