After seven seasons at Chelsea, Willian decided to change his tune. However, the Brazilian winger, who did not want to extend his contract with the Blues, has chosen to stay in England, still in London, as he has signed a three-year contract with Arsenal. A new challenge for the 32-year-old, who is already making his new coach Mikel Arteta happy. Invited to speak on the signing of the Auriverde, the Spanish tactician is already looking forward to see his new recruit at work.
“I think he’s a player who can really make a difference for us. We have followed him in recent months, we clearly intended to strengthen the positions in midfield and on the wings. He is a player who gives us a lot of versatility, he can play in three or four different positions. He has experience of everything that happens in the world of football, but he still has the ambition to come here and help bring the club to where it needs to be. I was very impressed with all the interviews I had with him and his desire to come,”said the Gunners coach. So see you on Saturday, August 29th for Willian’s community shield debut against liverpool.
