Chelsea star Willian, lost his starting shirt to former Barcelona star Pedro Rodriguez, despite having not put a foot wrong this season.

Willian, who was Chelsea Player of the Year for last season, has continually been linked with former Chelsea manager and current Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho.

Willian was at a time rumoured to be unhappy, but he has now pledged his future to Chelsea and has admitted that he is happy at Stamford Bridge.

“My future is here with Chelsea,” Willian said.

“I have a contract until 2020 and I’m happy.”

Willian lost his shirt to Pedro, but the Brazilian understands why Pedro has been ahead of him in the pecking order since October.

Willian said: “I know sometimes players always want to play but I understand why I’m not playing much.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
