Willians aiming high with Internacional
Udinese midfielder Willians has arrived in Porto Alegre to begin his six month loan spell with Internacional, hoping to get his career back on track after a difficult start to life in Italy.
Willians, 26, left Flamengo for Udinese last summer, but managed just three league starts for the Friuli side after question marks over his professionalism.
Renowned for his combativeness at the base of the midfield, the 2009 Brasileirão winner does not believe that he will need time to readapt to life in Brazil and hopes to fill the void left by the recently departed Pablo Guiñazú at the club.
"I think it's a good comparison," Willians told Rádio Gaúcha on arrival at the airport. "Guiñazú is a great player. I'm looking to have my space here in the team.
"I don't think I will have any problems adapting, nobody forgets things from one hour to the next. I'll train, prepare with the group and soon be on the field to help my teammates and win titles."
