Jose Mourinho made all the difference for new Chelsea signing Pedro when he finally made a decision to quit Barcelona and move to the Premier League.

The 28-year-old winger snubbed Manchester United and chose Chelsea because Mourinho made a direct appeal to him to come to Stamford Bridge.

Pedro is eager to add more silverware to the remarkable 20 trophies he picked up during his time at the Nou Camp.

"It's absolutely great to be here. Mourinho is one of the main reasons why I'm here. He phoned me a few times and said he needed me to make the team stronger," he said

"He has won titles wherever he has been. I am really looking forward to playing under him and hopefully winning more titles.

"I spoke to Cesc. We are very good friends. I knew I would feel at home here and that was one of the main reasons why I decided to join.

"He's a great player, he's got brilliant vision and he links up really well with the other attacking players. I know we work well together on the pitch so I can't wait to play with him again.

"I have also played with Diego Costa and Cesar Azpilicueta before, for the national team, so I feel very comfortable here.

"I do everything possible to win. I have helped Barcelona win titles and I want to do exactly the same thing at Chelsea, because ultimately we are all here to win things."
