Brazialian winger Willian started in Maurizio Sarri‘s first Premier League game as Chelsea boss on Saturday vs Huddersfield Town.
Willian himself admitted the appointment of the former SS Napoli manager was crucial in his choice to stay at Stamford Bridge.
“Would I be here if Conte stayed? No chance. No.” Willian said. “I’m here. I’m here because I want to play for Chelsea. I will only leave if Chelsea want me to go.”
Then the Brazilian spoke also about Maurizio Sarri: “He wants to build from the back. This is what we will try to do this season”. Willian went on. “This is what we do in Brazil and are trying to do here, playing with skill and movement and the manager told us to do that.”
