Chelsea winger Willian: Never write us off!


Chelsea winger Willian believes that it is time for others to stop underestimating the club.

Many fans had written off the Blues’ hopes of reaching the Champions League positions in the Premier League, or winning a trophy this season.

Reports of disharmony and doubts regarding the future of manager Maurizio Sarri have emerged all season.

However, Chelsea put all noise aside to thump Arsenal 4-1 in the Europa League final.

“We don’t listen in this situation, we just focus on our training, on the game. We leave this part for the club to resolve and we have to focus on the game,” Willian said about boss Sarri and the season to reporters.

“I think that we are underestimated. I think so. A lot of people, they think Chelsea have no chance to win anything this season because they don’t play well or something like this, but today we win this important trophy.

“Now we have to enjoy the holidays and prepare for next season. Chelsea want to win titles. Every year Chelsea fight for titles – something important. This year was the same. To finish the season in this way is amazing. I think we did a great job.

“I think there were a lot of ups and downs. At the end we took the third position in the Premier League, we went to the Carabao Cup final and now we win the Europa League final, so if you think about that, you can say it was good. Now it’s time to enjoy.”
