Demba Ba: "When they said, 'You are going to Chelsea' I was like, 'Yeah, it's like the start of my career'.
"I had always worked to get to a club like Chelsea and start winning trophies and doing what I have got to do.
"It (the past) was serious as well. No disrespect to other clubs, it was serious, but this is another level - something different.
"I enjoy what I do. It's like a gift. Someone gives you a gift, you are happy. If I give you a gift now, you are not going to have pressure, it's like a gift that has been given to you.
"I am from the bottom, so if I go back to the bottom I haven't lost anything. This is all bonus. I started at the bottom, now I am at the top. Not the roof, but just the top."
