Inter Milan misfit Ricardo Quaresma cannot wait to get his career back on track at Chelsea.
The Portugal winger has moved to Stamford Bridge on loan after failing to establish himself in the Inter side - making just 13 appearances - since a £20million summer move from Porto to join Jose Mourinho at the San Siro.
After a previous failed spell with Barcelona, the playmaker is now keen to put this latest blow behind him.
He cannot wait to play again under his old Portugal boss Luiz Felipe Scolari and help the Blues win trophies
Speaking at his official unveiling on Friday, the 25-year-old said: "You get criticism everywhere. Some people like you and some people don't. It is natural in life and in football.
"I don't care about that. What I care about is working hard to show my qualities.
"These things happen in football. Players can't really prove or show anything if they don't have the opportunities to play.
"I'm very happy that I have that opportunity now. Mr Scolari gives you lots of confidence.
"I heard from Mr Mourinho that Inter were thinking about loaning me to a club. When I heard about Chelsea I didn't think twice.
"Chelsea was my first choice, especially when I heard Mr Scolari was interested in me because I knew I would have an opportunity to show my game."
Quaresma could make his debut in Saturday's match against Hull at Stamford Bridge, given Joe Cole is out injured and Florent Malouda is out of form.
He added: "I'm not unhappy or regretful that I went to Inter Milan. Things happen sometimes that you can't control. Each coach has their own options and ideas and you have to respect that.
"I don't like to dwell much on the past. I'm very happy to have this opportunity to come to one of the greatest clubs in the world.
"I don't think I have to prove anything to anybody. All I think about is to work hard and show my best qualities on the pitch. I want to help Chelsea achieve their goals.
"I'm confident I'm going to be on the pitch on Saturday and will show my game."
