Willian reveals his most ‘annoying’ opponent
Chelsea winger Willian says that teammate Ngolo Kante is the ‘most annoying’ opponent he has ever faced. The pair are teammates now, but played against one another when Kante was at Leicester.
Kante won the title with the Foxes in 2016 before joining Chelsea and immediately winning the league title there too.
In an interview with Bolivia TV, Willian says that he is relieved to have been Kante’s teammate for the last four seasons.
“I played against Kante, who today is my teammate, when he was at Leicester. He is the kind of player who you have to dribble past like ten times because he always comes back.
“So he is one of the most annoying players I’ve faced, also during training.” The Brazilian also had plenty of praise for boss Frank Lampard.
“He is improving and has everything it takes to be a great manager and he’s a great man as well with a great heart. I have a great relationship with him and I love working with him.”
