Chelsea’s star winger Willian speculates on the possibility of a Juventus transfer in the near future and intention of staying with Chelsea.
‘Everyone knows how I love this club and how I enjoy to play for Chelsea. If I can, I will stay here until I am 40 years old but football is not always like this,’ he told Sky Sports.
‘[I want to stay] because I like to play here. It’s not only my decision, we have to decide together with the club. We’ve had some conversations. ‘I hope I can say to you guys that I will stay but now I cannot say.’
However, on Sunday, spectators and players saw an alleged racial abuse scense directed at Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger, when the Blues won 2-0 over the Spurs. Willian spoke up about this incident and urges concerned authories to take stricter action.
‘It’s a shame. It’s very disappointing, I don’t how people can think [like] that. In their team [Tottenham] they have black players as well. I really don’t understand what they think or why they do these kinds of things,’ he added.
‘I think we have to find, together, a way to stop this. It’s a shame for everyone.
‘It hurts a lot. They don’t need to do it against me, they do it against my team-mates so I feel bad as well.
‘Inside the pitch you cannot think much about this otherwise you are not concentrating [on the game]. We do what we can do, our captain reports to the referee that we had a manifestation of racism and the ref decides what to do.
‘I hope we see more action from the federations, that’s what we want.’
