Chelsea loanee Ricardo Quaresma is determined to find his best form for the club following a difficult spell with Inter Milan.
The Portuguese winger has moved to Stamford Bridge until the end of the season after falling out of favour under former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho at Inter.
Indeed, Quaresma feels that he was not given the chance to shine in Italy, but with a reunion with ex-Portugal boss Luiz Felipe Scolari now sealed, the showboat king expects to give a far better account of his undoubted talent in the second half of the season.
"I didn't have many opportunities to show my qualities at Inter," Quaresma told Chelsea TV.
"All I want is to show my qualities, to show what I am made of and hopefully I am going to help Chelsea achieve their goals.
"Obviously Chelsea is a great club and it has great quality players and I am very proud that I can have the chance to represent such a great club.
"I am going to give my best, I am going to prove that I deserve to be in this team and that I am the right player to help Chelsea achieve their goals. Hopefully I will be able to do so."
As well as Scolari, Quaresma will be joining some more familiar faces in London, with compatriots Deco, Ricardo Carvalho, Jose Bosingwa, Paulo Ferreira and Henrique Hilario already at the club.
"With all the other Portuguese players, I am sure it is going to be easier for me and I am very glad to be here with them," he added.
"I hope to please the supporters as much as I hope to please the team because that is what we play for, that is what motivates us."
