Joe Cole has singled out a praise for Willian saying that he is the most under-rated player at Chelsea.
“He is one of the most under-rated players. Eden Hazard gets a lot of headlines but Willian has never let Chelsea down,” former Stamford Bridge winger Cole said. “He took the whole back five out of play and we want to see Willian in these positions. To cut inside from there and bang it in is unbelievable.”
“Willian knows what he’s doing with the ball – right, come inside and hit that top bins. I loved it, absolutely loved it. I’m so pleased for him because he’s a top player and it’s great he sees his future here. He’s one of the best players in the Premier League.”
“I’ve watched this lad for many, many years now and every time I watch him he’s affecting the game. You don’t play for Brazil as many times as him with all the quality they’ve got. He’s produced again for Chelsea. I know fans love watching him play and the fact he says he sees his future here is brilliant.”
Willian has been linked with a move to Barcelona which he has categorically turned down.
