I’m the only player who has done that – Willian reveals why he’s different from others
When he ended his contract with Arsenal, former Chelsea star Willian explained why he acted differently than many other footballers.
After switching from Chelsea to Arsenal in 2020, Willian eventually terminated his contract with the Gunners and left the Emirates without asking for any money.
The Brazilian has now discussed why, in contrast to many football stars, he chose not to extend his contract with the team despite not feeling at ease. To many players, what matters most is the money.
Wlian found life in North London so difficult that he only registered two assists on his debut for the Gunners and would leave the Gunners after just one year.
He then moved to Brazil, where he played briefly for Corinthians, and the 34-year-old is now back in London to join Fulham.
“I think I’m maybe the only player who has done something like this,” Willian told the Athletic.
“Any other player in my situation would have stayed until the end of the contract and kept picking up the money." But I’m not like this.
“Money is not the most important thing in the world. I have to feel good and motivated to go to training. I wasn’t having that, so I decided to leave. "
