Willian, Brazilian star, says he is learning many things at Arsenal under Arteta

Willian explained that he is finding it challenging to cope with Mikel Arteta’s styles at the Emirates stadium.

  • ‘It’s been a cool, new experience. I hadn’t worked with a coach with that mindset.
  • ”The positional game doesn’t mean that you have no freedom on the pitch, you have the freedom to move, but many times you have to respect the position, what the coach asks, the instructions, understanding that it’ll be better for the team.
  • ”It may happen that you don’t touch the ball and get frustrated, but Mikel always says that, wait a minute, the ball will arrive. I’ve been learning a lot.”

Willian started his professional football career at Corinthians where he played 20 games and scored two goals before moving to Europe.

He played 234 games for Chelsea netting 37 goals between 2013-2020 before joining Arsenal where he has so far played five game.
