Lucas Piazon: Malaga the best option

Lucas Piazon has claimed that he is delighted to have joined Malaga on loan from Chelsea.

The Brazilian youngster swapped London for Andalusia in January, and has admitted that the club and the city suit him perfectly.

“The place is great,” he told reporters. “It's sunny, if slightly cool at the moment. But I like the food and some of the sights are fantastic.

“Coming to Malaga was the best option for me. There is a complicated environment at Chelsea at the moment.

“There is a lot of pressure and it's difficult for a young player like me to get in the team.

“Malaga was the best place for me to come because I want to play and have the opportunity to grow as a player.

“Spanish football is a lot like Brazil, and that means I can adapt easier and enjoy my football more.”
