Fulham announced today that they have signed 34-year-old free agent Willian on a contract until June 2023.
Willian is honored in the Premier League . From 2013 to 2021, Willian played for Chelsea and Arsenal successively, with a total of 376 appearances, 64 goals and 69 assists. In terms of honor, William has won 1 Champions League, 1 Europa League, 2 Premier League, 1 FA Cup and 1 League Cup with Chelsea in the past 8 years.
In August 2021, Willian gave up a salary of 20.5 million pounds to return to his home team Corinthians, and was once a legend in football. However, as his family was attacked and threatened by extreme fans, Willian terminated his contract with Corinthians ahead of schedule in August this year, and then made a free transfer to Fulham .
“A special club”
Willian is excited to return to the Premier League stage after a year-long absence. He expressed his feelings in an interview with FFCtv, while praising Fulham as “a special club”. “I’m happy to be here, I’m happy to be back in the Premier League,” said the Brazilian. “Fulham is a special club, a club that is driven, a club that wants to fight for something bigger, I’m here to help and I can’t wait to get started.”
