Chelsea legend Frank Lampard and Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand have hailed Chelsea star Willian for his performance in Chelsea’s 3-0 loss to Barcelona on Wednesday night.
Willian impressed in both legs of Chelsea’s Champions League last-16 tie against Barcelona.
Lampard and Ferdinand believe Willian is capable of playing for any team in the world.
Speaking on BT Sport, Chelsea legend Lampard said: “Willian was basically at the middle of everything good that they did today.
“He is on top form at the moment, without a doubt Willian now could easily play in any team in the world.
“He could have played in Barcelona’s team. We wax lyrical about Messi, I think Willian can play at that level.”
Ferdinand was also full of praise for Willian.
“Willian was the stand-out player for Chelsea,” Ferdinand said.
“Like Frank said he can go into any team in the world at the moment, on that type of form, you want to see that week in week out from him.”
