Willian explains why he prefers life under Sarri rather than Conte at Chelsea

Chelsea ace Willian reckons new boss Maurizio Sarri has brought the fun back to Blues since replacing Antonio Conte as manager last summer.

The Brazilian had fallen out with Conte and was keen to leave, should the former Juventus manager have stayed for the new season.

Speaking ahead of PAOK clash in Europa League Willian was asked what impact Sarri has made and replied:

“He wants us to play. You can see in the games the difference from last season. We play more, we have more possession, we enjoy, we have fun with responsibility. We win five games in a row so we have to continue the same way.

 “I’m happy with the new manager, with the new profile of football. We have a great team atmosphere. We have great players. We can do everything this season to win titles.

“I‘m very proud to stay and to be a Chelsea player. It’s an honour to play for this club. I’m very happy at Chelsea.

“Everyone knows what happened in the last transfer window but my mind was always at Chelsea. It was always to play for Chelsea. Now with Sarri we have a different way to play football so we just want to enjoy and continue to play for this club.”
