Chelsea winger Willian was a guest on ESPN’s show Resenha recently, Brazillian players seem to be more relaxed on this show and they don't mind saying things they might not have said when speaking to the press in Europe.

Sunday's episode was with Willian which was probably recorded much earlier as the player featured for Chelsea in their 2-0 loss to Manchester City at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday which means he couldn't have been in Brazil to appear on the show.

The presenter asked Willian about his future at Chelsea and the Brazil star said “I’m very happy at Chelsea and I intend to stay at the club. I also like to live in London, incredible city, family is also adapted, so I intend to continue at Chelsea.”

Then Willian was asked if he was looking forward to working with Maurizio Sarri, who’s arguably the most attacking coach the club have employed during his time at Chelsea: “I hope he’s not the same as Conte (laughs). I’m joking, I think Conte was a manager, for me, particularly, very difficult to work with. His philosophy, his logistics, to manage there, is very complicated.”

“I’ve had some games that you don’t understand, you’re playing very well and are taken out, you don’t understand, twice I headed out of the game and went straight to the dressing room. So it was a bit difficult working with him. But in life we learn from that too.”
