Chelsea signs Quaresma

February 3, 2009 at 7:00 am (sports) (, , , , , , , )

Quaresma, nicknamed ‘Mustang’ forfor his speed and power, will be the sixth Portuguese player in Luiz Felipe Scolari’s first-team squad.His arrival will help to compensate for the loss of injured England midfielder Joe Cole who is out for the rest of the season with knee ligament damage.The 25-year-old can play on either flank and began his career with local club Sporting Lisbon.

He soon worked his way into the first team and became a regular during the championship-winning 2001/02 season alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, now with Manchester United.Quaresma made 59 league appearances in two seasons before joining Barcelona but his time at the Nou Camp was hampered by injury.He returned to Portugal with Porto and his form helped the club to seal a succession of league triumphs.Quaresma was one of Jose Mourinho’s first signings for Inter but now he has the opportunity to rekindle his relationship with Scolari.The Brazilian knows the winger well from his time as Portugal manager. He selected the winger for Euro 2008, where Quaresma scored the most recent of his three international goals, in a 3-1 win over Petr Cech’s Czech Republic side.
