Full-back sure Portuguese compatriot will succeed at Chelsea

Chelsea defender Paulo Ferreira has backed his Portuguese compatriot Jose Bosingwa to succeed at Stamford Bridge. Right-back Bosingwa sealed his £16.2million switch from Porto to The Blues in May. The 25-year-old is expected to compete for a starting berth with Ferreira and Juliano Belletti in the new season. And Ferreira believes Bosingwa will add much to the Chelsea squad in their hunt for glory. "He is a fast player, which I know from Porto because I played with him there,' Ferreira told the club's official website. "He was very young when I was there and now he is proving he's a good player. "He has improved a lot over the last few years, so I think he is a player who will help us a lot."
