What Maurizio Sarri said about Willian dive


Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarrio has talked down the issues of dive involving Brazilian forward Willian.

When asked about the player’s offence in the 4-0 win at Burnley in the last game, the Italian manager did not see it as an issue as he calmly stated that he cannot remember because he is an old man.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright is one of those who made efforts to castigate the Brazilian for trying to earn his side a penalty at all cost but that will not get to the former Napoli manager.

He was clear to say that he cannot recall the exact situation as he looks forward to today (Sunday) game against Crystal Palace, adding that he only watches the television if the screen is green and nothing more.

Willian has been a key player for the West London club having scored a total of three goals with four assists this season which makes it important for the manager to clear off any controversies on the player.

it is important to defend him because the Brazilian has served as a cover for Belgium international Eden Hazard who has been absent for a number of games due to the back injury he is treating.
