The South American footballer said goodbye to the London institution in his social networks through a letter, after being left out of the Champions League.
After being knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by a round of 16 thrashing at Bayern Munich, Chelsea’s season came to an end and thus also Willian’s moment at Stamford Bridge.
For a long time it has been rumored that the Brazilian will leave the Blues, and it was also publicly known a long time ago that he would not continue in the club, so the footballer decided to say goodbye to the London institution by letter.
“It was seven wonderful years, since I received the offer from Chelsea and I was immediately convinced that I should play here. I still think I made the right decision. Although there have been happy times and other sad ones, winning trophies and always at an intense level”, the South American posted on his networks.
He added: “I want to thank Chelsea for their warm welcome and their support over time. There was some criticism, which is normal, but the most important thing is that I did my best in every training session and in every game. for this shirt. “
