Enzo Fernandez adapting ‘little by little’ to demands of Premier League

Chelsea’s record-signing Enzo Fernandez says he is adapting ‘little by little’ to the demands of playing in the Premier League, following his high-profile January move from Benfica.

Despite a troubled few months for Chelsea, which resulted in Graham Potter losing his job, Enzo has already emerged as a favourite among supporters, with his progressive style of play a big hit.

Speaking to Paramount+ Mexico following the drab goalless draw with Liverpool last night, the midfielder explained how the transition to English football has been tough but, step by step, he is finding his feet.

“I’m adapting little by little,” Enzo revealed.

“It’s a very tough league. I came from the Portuguese league where sometimes you play more with the ball.

“Here the game is faster and more physical. So I’m adapting step by step.

“I know it’s going to take me time but I have the support from my team mates and coaching staff so I can adapt quicker and better here.”

Chelsea pounced to sign Enzo for a British transfer record £106m off the back of impressing during Argentina’s run to lifting the World Cup in Qatar.

The midfielder was arguably Argentina’s best player alongside Lionel Messi and he was heralded for his work ethic and quality in possession.

The adjustment period in England has not been straightforward given the managerial change and Chelsea’s poor form but Enzo believes he has much more to show.

“I describe myself with the characteristics to always have the ball, always playing nice football and building up with passes,” he explained.

“I like this type of football, keeping possession, building up the game with passes and then attacking the spaces.

“I’m not going to comment about the new coach coming here and I don’t know anything about the new coach.

“Whoever comes in it’s going to be fine and we are going to do our best for Chelsea.”
