Willian Credits Lampard’s Methods with Recent Form
Chelsea winger Willian says that new Blues boss Frank Lampard is the main reason for his flourishing form this season.
The Brazilian has earned rave reviews as an elder statesman to Chelsea’s younger players and the team have now won 6 games on the bounce in the league.
Willian told ESPN Brasil that Lampard has granted him greater freedom to roam inside from the wing into more central positions.
“Lampard has been giving me complete confidence, always talking to me. Since the beginning of the season he said he wanted to see me happy, to see me smiling, to see me playing the way I can play and giving me the freedom to move around doing what I wanted.
“Unlike last season, when the game system was a little different, when I didn’t have so much freedom to keep moving. And this season is different, I think this freedom I’m having makes my football appear more and more.
“This has been happening, so I’m very happy to be able to add to the team in this way, playing in this way that we have positive results.”
