What an arsenal blast.
Willian’s agent Kia Jurabchen has insisted on Arsenal, insisting his client will not be held responsible for the Brazilian struggle in the UAE.
Willian joined the Gunners on a free transfer from Chelsea last summer but failed to make an impact by scoring just one goal for the club.
With two years left on his contract, Villian terminated his contract and left with the Corinthians on a free transfer yesterday to return to his homeland.
“He went for the project and it wasn’t there,” Jorabchian told TalkSport.
“I don’t think it’s about Willian. I think something went wrong. [at Arsenal] And that’s just one piece of the puzzle.
“He terminated his contract, and he did it voluntarily. The first players, especially at Arsenal, have terminated their contracts, but he was not one of them.
“Unfortunately, it didn’t work for him. When he joined, he joined sincerely because he was very much at the center. [Mike] Artita’s thinking.
“Artita gave a number of presentations to Willian and made it clear that he would be at the center of how he would build the team around him.”
