‘We Need To Give Our Answer On The Pitch’ Says Willian
Chelsea forward Willian says that his teammates should not talk too much and give their answer on the pitch, after a poor defence to their Premier League title which will almost certainly see the club finish outside of the top 4.
The Blues are 10 points adrift of 4 th place with only a few games remaining and face a second campaign outside of the competition in three seasons. Willian says the players need to respond on the pitch- and has identified the FA Cup as a glimmer of light.
Chelsea play Southampton in the semi-final in a fortnight and the Brazilian told The Mirror, “That’s why the pressure is coming – because Chelsea has to be top four, fighting for the title, fighting to do something special every season.
“This season I think we have one more chance to do something different to get a trophy. The FA Cup. I don’t like to switch on the TV and see someone saying, ‘Willian has played very bad’. This is hard. But the big players, they respond on the pitch. Not with words or something like that. In football you always have to give your answer on the pitch.”
