Chelsea winger Willian has claimed that he lost 4kg as a result of his mother’s death, anyway the Brazilian star is back and fully fit.

“I think I’m back to my best. I went through a problem, everyone knows how hard it was and it really affected me mentally, physically, with my mother’s situation – Willian said – She was hospitalized for almost two months and then died, so that was a very difficult time. I tried not to take it on the field but there was no way”. 

“It ended up affecting me, I ended up losing weight. I lost 4kg after my mother’s death, so it was a bit difficult to get back.

“I lost 4kg without doing anything. It was something that made me a little worried because it shook me a lot.

“Mentally I got very sick but I feel much better. Family and friends gave me a lot of support and it helped me a lot. Now I’ve recovered the 4kg. Today I feel better mentally and physically.”
