Brazilian talent Lucas Piazon admits he is thoroughly enjoying his time at Malaga.
Piazon moved to Malaga in last month’s transfer window, sealing a loan move from English giants Chelsea in order to increase his playing time and speed up his development.
And the 19-year-old, who made his Malaga bow in the club’s Copa del Rey clash against Barcelona, has only good things to report so far.
Indeed, Piazon feels Spain and Spanish football suits him.
"The way of playing football, taking possession and not using that much physicality, suits me", he told El Mundo Deportivo.
"It is more like Brazilian football.
"I can enjoy it more and I feel safer."
Piazon was snapped up by Chelsea from Brazilian club Sao Paulo, moving to London in 2011.
With a squad packed full of talent though, breaking through at Stamford Bridge has been a tough task for Piazon, who is now hoping that a six-month stint packed with first team football under Manuel Pellegrini at Malaga can help his cause.
