Willian sends clear message to Chelsea FC supporters about his future
Willian insists that he never considered leaving Chelsea FC this summer
Willian has insisted that he never considered leaving Chelsea FC this summer and says he is happy at Stamford Bridge.
The Brazilian attacker is widely regarded as one of European football’s top forward players following his solid form for Chelsea FC in recent years.
However, Willian struggled to hold down a regular starting spot in the first team under Antonio Conte last season and that prompted speculation linking him with a move away from Stamford Bridge.
Conte was replaced by new Chelsea FC manager Maurizio Sarri in the summer and Willian has been playing a key role under the new Blues boss.
He has started three of Chelsea FC’s four Premier League games and has already notched up one assist for his team-mates.
Willian is already adapting well to life under Sarri, and the Brazilian has insisted that he is fully focused on his future at the west London club.
Speaking in an interview with Chelsea FC’s website, Willian said: “A lot of people they say a lot of things in the press, but I never said that I want to leave Chelsea, never.
“Always I say that I want to stay at Chelsea as long as possible, and I am happy to stay here.”
Chelsea FC will return to Premier League action after the international break when the Blues host Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge.
The west London side finished in fifth place and won the FA Cup under Antonio Conte last season.
