Threatened by many supporters, Willian terminated his contract with Corinthians to return to Europe.
Former Chelsea star, Brazilian Willian terminated his contract with Corinthians on Friday. « It’s a shame, we would have liked to keep him longer, but to stay here, the player must be happy », responded President Duilio Monteiro Alves, in a video posted on the club’s Twitter account. The 34-year-old made the decision in part because of threats from fans on social media, some of them targeting his children.
In search of a new challenge in Europe, the former striker of Chelsea and Arsenal would be in particular in contact with the promoted Fulham. Whether Willian will find common ground with the Cottagers remains to be seen.
