Chelsea ace Willian has expressed his happiness at reaching the 300 match landmark for the club.
The Brazilian signed for the club back in 2013 and is now one of the more experienced players at the Bridge.
“I always believed I could play so many games. I had to believe,” he told the club’s official website.
“It’s difficult to achieve this number, especially when you play for a big club like Chelsea because there are many, many players that are fighting for the same position. It was a challenge for me.
“In football you have to prove yourself every day, in every game. When you stop doing that you have to stop playing. You have to prove it to yourself as well. I have done that.
“I have been here already for six years, I have had different managers, different players in the squad, and I was proving every training session, every game, that I can play many, many years for this club.
“I think I have improved a lot. Every game you can learn from. Then after every game you ask yourself ‘What have I done well, what have I not done well?’ I always want to continue improving.
“Now I’m very proud to reach this number, and I hope for 300 more to come!”
