Butter Wouldn`t Melt………………
When the Brazilian midfielder Oscar arrived at Stamford Bridge, he looked as if he had the potential to go on and become a world-beater.
But the initial burst of genius he showed didn`t flourish in the manner in which we expected.
At times it looked as if physically he wasn`t up to the task and that he was too easily knocked off the ball.
The word 'timid` for some strange reason comes to mind.
I can`t recall Oscar getting involved in many confrontations apart from the odd niggling foul that may have upset the recipient.
But reports are reaching us that in the Chinese Super League, butter wouldn`t melt in his angelic mouth, Oscar, has caused quite a stir.
Playing for Shanghai SIPG against Guangzhou R&F, in a fit of temper Oscar decided it was the done thing to kick the ball, from close range, at not one but two of the opposition players.
In doing so Oscar provoked a brawl that involved players and coaches from both sides.
Now that`s hardly the 'timid` Oscar I recall from his time with Chelsea!
