Chelsea Forward Willian Has Plead With The Club To Let Him Go Visit His Family In Brazil.

Chelsea football club forward, Willian has asked the club's permission for him to return to his native Sao Paulo Brazil in order to be with his family amid the coronavirus outbreak.

News has it that a number of clubs have stepped up the monitoring of players during football's break because of coronavirus by sending them tracking devices to wear, so the 31-year-old has followed the due process, to make his request known to the Chelsae's board, and he is waiting for authorisation to do so

Speaking to Brazilian channel Globo SporTV, Willian said:
"At the moment, I’m alone. My wife and daughters are in Brazil.”
"We’re deciding, they are about to come back here, but as there was a meeting and there was a definition here, they postponed the league until April 30th… With that fact, I’m trying to get permission from the club to be able to go.”

"I explained the situation, I’m trying to get authorisation. I heard that players from other clubs are going to Brazil too, maybe being close to the family at this moment."
"We know the more we stand still, the more we lose physical condition. I’ve been home for six days, I don’t have much structure to do the exercises I wanted to do.”

"Even in my building there’s a gym, but I can’t go there to do it, I have to stay indoors. It ends up making it a little difficult, but I think it will be good, we have to think about people. If everyone does their part well, it will be over.”
"It’s a difficult time for everyone. People are starting to stay indoors, a lot of things are being closed, schools will also stop. So it’s a time to be supportive of others."

The 2019 Copa America winner with Brazil, had said earlier this week via a Facebook live chat, that he is ready to continue playing for the club, even if matches take place after his current contract expires.

His current contract with Chelsea is set to end in June, having spent 8-years with the blues since his £30million move from Russian club side Anzhi Makhachkala in  2013.

Willian has played a vital role for Frank Lampard team, scoring 8 goals and 6 assists across all competitions this season before the suspension of all football activities in England, with the Premier League now set to resume 30th April at the earliest.
