Willian: I Wouldnt’ve Stayed at Chelsea Under Conte

Willian says that there is “no chance” he would have carried on playing for Chelsea under Antonio Conte, but he is happy he stuck around to play for Maurizio Sarri.

Barcelona bid to secure Willian from Chelsea over the summer, although they were put off as the club demanded more than £60 million for the winger, who has also interested Manchester United in recent seasons.

The 30-year-old was a key player towards the end of Conte’s reign, but he still didn’t see eye-to-eye with his former manager and even placed trophy emoji’s over him as he posted his FA Cup celebration pictures to his Instagram page.

However, thoughts of leaving are no longer on his agenda.

“Would I be here if Conte stayed? No chance. No,” he said. “I’m here. I’m here because I want to play for Chelsea. I will only leave if Chelsea want me to go.
