Chelsea’s Willian believes the English Premier League is the best in the world

Willian celebrates scoring against Southampton earlier in the season - Action Images

The Brazil international is enjoying life in England and spoke about his joy in a recent interview with the Blues’ official website.

The 25-year-old has played in domestic leagues in Brazil, Ukraine, Russia and now England, and was in no doubt about which one he considers the best.

“English football is very different from anything I've experienced before. It's really competitive, and really fast.”

“I used to watch it on TV but you just don't have the same idea as when you actually play in it. I can feel the difference now. In my opinion it is the best league in the world.”

Willian has had a stellar first season so far, featuring 28 times and scoring twice in all competitions under manager Jose Mourinho.

“My aim is to keep improving every game I play so I can develop my game further here,” he said.

“I feel really happy to have been able to start so many games and to earn my place in the team, and to find my place with the other players, the manager and the technical coaches. I will try to work even harder so I can continue enjoying it as much as I have been doing.”
