Willian Souza da Silva is a footballer for Chelsea in the English Premier League. He is a Brazil international.


Willian began his career in football with Corinthians where he played until 2007, when he secured his maiden European move to Ukrainian big spenders Shakhtar Donetsk alongside a handful of other Brazilians. He was part of the Shakhtar side which won the 2009 UEFA Cup along with four Ukrainian league titles.

He left Ukraine briefly to join emerging Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala but left after barely nine months as the club went into financial difficulty.
