Willian Relishing Working Under Sarri
Chelsea winger Willian says he is relishing working under new Blues’ boss Maurizio Sarri. Willian had been linked with a move to Barcelona, Real Madrid or Manchester United this summer.
The Brazilian fuelled rumours by returning late for pre-season, but the player insists he has held clear the air talks with new boss Sarri and says that he is happy at the club. “I am a Chelsea player,” said Willian. “I have always made it clear that I want to stay here.
“The only club I know of that made a genuine offer for me was Barcelona. But my head is here and I have the intention of staying as long as the club don’t want to sell me.” Willian says he is looking forward to working under the Italian boss.
“This is a new era, with a new manager and I've had a good conversation with him. I hope we can enjoy a lot of victories,” said Willian. “Sarri is a coach who likes to play football; he has a style of playing that is similar to Manchester City.
“We’ve only just started working with him, but in the first few days we’ve seen that he is a coach who likes to play the ball out from the back and likes his teams to play football. He will be very important for us.”
