Willian explains key to his quality Chelsea FC form
Willian believes that his strong performances for Chelsea FC this season are down to hard work
Willian believes that his strong performances for Chelsea FC this season are down to his relentless practice behind the scenes.
The Brazilian attacker has been earning plenty of praise for his recent displays for the west London side and he has been a regular fixture in the first team in recent weeks.
Willian will be hoping to start for Chelsea FC when the Blues take on FC Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League on Wednesday night.
The 29-year-old has netted six goals and made six assists in the Premier League so far this season and he helped Chelsea FC to claim all three points against Crystal Palace after the 2-1 win last weekend.
And the Brazil international has now opened up on why he thinks he has been performing so well for the west London club this season.
Speaking in an interview with Chelsea magazine, Willian said: “I think you have to enjoy yourself on the pitch.
“To play football, you have to be happy. I have to enjoy this moment now. When you start to play more games, or when you play every match, you have confidence and things are good for you, then you can keep smiling.
“I spent a long time practising tricks when I was young and my favourite was the elastico, which I try to do during games even now.
“I played like an attacker. I always wanted to attack, to have the ball, to dribble and score goals.”
Chelsea FC are currently in fifth place in the Premier League table as they look to try and break back into the top four before the season is out.
They are currently four points behind fourth-placed Liverpool FC as they bid to try and qualify for next season’s Champions League, with eight games left to play this term.
