Top quotes about Willian - Footie Central


Brazilian Willian Borges da Silva is a midfielder and attacking winger who has achieved success so far with Shakhtar Donetsk and Chelsea in the Premier League. Currently back with the Brazilian Corinthians, where he started his career, we take a look at some of the most important quotes about Willian.

Called up as a late substitute for the injured Neymar, Willian helped Brazil win the 2019 Copa America in their country.

Having started his career in Brazil, Willian moved to Shakhtar in 2007 and proceeded to win the Premier League four times, the FA Cup three times, and the UEFA Cup in 2009, the club’s first ever European title.

His move to Chelsea cost the club £30 million, and his seven seasons with the team saw two Premier League wins, one FA Cup and one Europa League victory. Most of the 63 goals he scored for the team came from his specialization in shooting and nets directly from free kicks. In fact, he was the top free kick scorer in Europe during the 2015/2016 season.

After a brief and difficult stint with Arsenal, Willian decided to return to Corinthians in 2021. Of the 70 international matches he has played so far, Willian has represented Brazil in two World Cup tournaments.

Thanks to his technical ability, he showed his ingenuity in the “camouflage” and “flexibility” movements, as he was able to deceive the defender while dribbling the ball.

“I’ve played with him, trained him, he’s a great guy and a great player.”
Frank Lampard (Chelsea manager)

“Willian is a super player… his intelligence is there for all to see.”
Danny Murphy (TV Analyst)

“The Brazilian is now an old statesman at Stamford Bridge and the perfect candidate to bring in Chelsea’s youth through…..he is also the best player on the team.”
Garth Crooks (TV Analyst)

“Willian has the potential to have that kind of performance in every game, and I hope to see that every time…..when you play like that, the coach doesn’t even suspect that you’re playing.”
Antonio Conte (Chelsea manager)

“…..he is a player who gives us a lot of variety, he can play in three or four different positions. He has experience with everything in the world of football.”
Mikel Arteta (Arsenal manager)

“He has a lot of great traits as a person, as a footballer of course, his personality.”
edu (Arsenal technical director)

“Forget Eden Hazard – is Willian actually the most skilled player at Chelsea?”

“…It was awesome. He took it to another level.”

“…He was really cool to me there because I knew his natural traits, when you make him really fit and feel like the main guy, would jump from one side (to the other).”

Mikel Arteta
