Prior to the game he was quizzed on his impending switch across the channel, and spoke with clear enthusiasm about his dream switch.

The centre-back told Canal+ that the signing was an emotional one for him and his family.

He said: "My parents at first were shocked, they were very happy for me, and I was also very happy. It was very emotional, especially when I signed, my mother burst into tears."

The defender went onto say indicate that Chelsea were always the club for him, although he still can't comprehend how real it is going to be.

"For me to get to sign with the Blues is a great honor for me, especially wearing the color blue, it's nice.

"Since I was little is my favorite color! Before I had Chelsea on the Playstation, now I have them in real life I hope. I even had Mourinho on the phone, it was a big shock for me!"
