Chelsea's Mexican wonderkid Ulises Davila speaks on future plans, and historic goal

Mexico Flag

Chelsea's Ulises Davila is hoping to play in La Liga next season, rather than the Premier League.

Ulises Davila is a little bit of an enigma to Chelsea fans, but he has finally hit the headlines.

Davila scored a goal at the weekend to secure promotion for Spanish side Cordoba, earning them a place in La Liga for the first time in more than 40 years.

For those unfamiliar, Davila was signed from Guadalajara in 2011 by Chelsea, but was sent out on loan to Vitesse in Holland, Sabadell in Spain, and most recently Cordoba. He is yet to make an appearance for the Blues.

An attacking midfielder, Davila is remarkably already 23-years-old, and certainly faces an uphill task to break into the Chelsea side, so his moment in the limelight could be a career-boosting one in terms of his profile.

And he is certainly enjoying it, telling ESPN: "Believe me (when) you can play in first division or cause a club to play in the First Division after 40 years you realise that yes I did something very, very important."

But will he be returning to Cordoba? He certainly sounds keen, as has been non-committal where Chelsea are concerned.

"I would like to stay another year, to play in the first division for me would be as a great opportunity, a great showcase, I think that for me that would be best."

The goal was Davila's seventh strike of the season, and the most important of his fledgling career to date.

He added that while he desires to return to Spain he is bound to speak to Chelsea and listen to their wishes, but feels after spending two seasons in the second tier, to leave without testing himself in the first would be disappointing.
