‘I Always Wanted to Play for Chelsea’ Says Willian
Chelsea winger Willian says that reaching 300 appearances with the London club represents the culmination of a dream.
The Brazilian signed for the club from Anzhi in the summer of 2013 and he has become a crucial member of the squad.
“I have to be proud of that,” Willian told the club’s official website. “To achieve this number for this club is unbelievable. It was my dream to come to play for Chelsea.
“Always I wanted to play for this club. I had this affection with this club since they made an offer for me when I was at Shakhtar. I started watching the games and supporting this team.
“I loved the name, ‘Chelsea’. The colour blue. And then I had the chance to play at Stamford Bridge for Shakhtar.
“When I stop playing, my name will be there,’ concluded Willian. “No-one can cross it off. I feel proud of that.”
