Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has defended the club’s behaviour in handling Willian’s contract situation.
There were reports on Friday, that the Brazilian winger was ‘upset’ about how his time at Stamford Bridge has ended.
After seven years with the Blues, Willian is set to join their London rivals Arsenal in a three-year deal.
Chelsea refused to hand the 31-year-old a contract with that length of time and the player is not impressed that his loyalty was not rewarded.
However, Lampard backed the club’s stance and admitted he doesn’t think Willian would feel that way about the situation.
“I read a headline that mentioned disappointment, it doesn’t matter.
“In terms of being disappointed, certainly as a club we’ve done everything we can to explain to Willian.
“Our relationship is really close and I would have no feeling of disappointment if he does move on. He’s a fantastic man and a fantastic player,” Lampard told reporters.
