One player that really loves Chelsea and works hard for the team is Willian.

The Brazilian is loved by Chelsea fans because of the passion he plays with when he wears the Chelsea shirt.

Willian has revealed he fell in love with Chelsea after the club first made a move for him while he was at Shakhtar.

Chelsea couldn’t get the Brazilian while he was at Shakhtar but finally signed him in August 2013 just months after he left Shakhtar for Anzhi in Russia.

“It was my dream to come to play for Chelsea,” Willian told Chelsea’s official website. “Always I wanted to play for this club.

“I had this affection with this club since they made an offer for me when I was at Shakhtar. I started watching the games and supporting this team. I loved the name, ‘Chelsea’. The colour blue. And then I had the chance to play at Stamford Bridge for Shakhtar.”
