A Time To Move On, Chelsea’s Willian Confirms Departure

Posted by

Brazil International and one of the most important players CFC is proud of in the last seven years Willian has confirmed his departure from Chelsea in an open letter to the club’s fans. It is like a dream to me as I person. Both Chelsea and the said player were supposed to work things out to see the gifted Brazilian stayed back (at least for the fans).

“They were seven wonderful years. In August 2013 when I received the offer from Chelsea, I was convinced that this was where I had to play,” Willian wrote. “Today I am certain that it was the best of decisions. There were so many happy times, some sad, there were trophies and it was always very intense. “The time has now come to move on. I am certainly going to miss my team-mates. I will miss all the staff at the club who’ve always treated me like a son and I will miss the fans. I leave with my head held high, safe in the knowledge that I won things here and always did my best in a Chelsea shirt! Willian joined Chelsea from Anzhi Makhachkala in 2013 and went on to make 339 appearances for the Premier League side. He lifted two Premier League titles and won the Europa League, FA Cup and League Cup. Both Chelsea staffs, teammates and indeed fans will miss Willian dearly.
