Fábio Paím


Recommended Posts

Former Portugal Under-21 coach Jose Couceiro has backed Fabio Paim to be a success at Chelsea.

Paim is being tipped to move to Stamford Bridge on a season-long loan from Sporting Lisbon with a view to a permanent deal.

At one time the 20-year-old was regarded as the next big thing at Sporting, but over the past season he has failed to make the expected progress.

Now Chelsea's boss Luiz Felipe Scolari is ready to take the young winger to London, where he hopes to kick-start his career.

Former Porto chief Couceiro, who worked with Scolari for two-years, insists that Paim would flourish under the Brazilian.

"He is a player with enormous potential, which needs stabilising and let's hope that will come from a new club," Couceiro - now head coach of Lithuania, told Antena 1.

"Chelsea is a great club, so it is possible he will stabilise there.

"It is important to train with coaches who can speak your language and with a coach of the level of Scolari."

Chelsea have signed Sporting Lisbon striker Fabio Paim on loan with a view to securing him on a permanent deal.

Chelsea have agreed a deal with the Portuguese club for the 20-year-old to join on an initial one-year loan.

Striker Claudio Pizarro recently left Stamford Bridge to join Werder Bremen on loan, while Andrei Shevchenko's future remains unclear.

Sporting have an excellent record in developing young players, most notably Cristiano Ronaldo.

Under contract to Sporting until 2010, Paim was loaned to Portuguese club Pacos da Ferreira last season.
