What he said
Jorginho was the most recent one, making the switch in the January transfer window, with his Chelsea contract set to run out in the summer.
Willian was also another high profile player who made the same switch not so long ago. The Brazilian is of course now with Fulham, and he is enjoying his football there and playing some good stuff.
At Chelsea, Willian was somewhat of a fan favourite despite being quite frustrating in terms of consistency. But there was a genuine relationship there with the fans, and Willian has admitted that he wished he never left Chelsea to join Arsenal.
In an interview this week with Sky Sports, Willian said: “Yeah. I wish I’d never left [Chelsea]. Yeah.
“Of course, it’s easy to say something now, but when I stop to think about the whole situation then yeah, I say to myself I wish I’d never left.
“But it’s life. I’m happy now at Fulham – enjoying myself there, so this is life.”
It’s a big thing to admit by the former Chelsea winger, but you can tell that he loved Chelsea a lot and spent some good years and some good times at the club.
