Chelsea winger, Willian, has revealed playing preseason friendlies against strong opposition is important for the team as it ensures the team is in the best possible condition when the season begins.
“Playing against top sides is a good challenge and it helps improve our game because we are coming up against very strong opponents, which is a good test for us before the season starts,” Willian told Chelsea’s official website.
“We played well, and won, against Arsenal and hopefully we can continue in this way win against Bayern and Inter.”
Willian is looking forward to Chelsea’s preseason tour of Singapore after spending time there with the Brazilian national team in the past.
“I’ve been there once with the Brazilian national team,” he recalls.
“We played against Japan and won the game so now, with Chelsea, I hope I can win there again and, of course, it would be nice to score another goal.”
