Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expresses admiration for Willian. Willian’s contract with Arsenal ended in 2021. The Brazil international currently holds a crucial role at Fulham, being one of their key players. Thus, recognizing Willian as a fantastic footballer, Klopp emphasizes his importance for Marco Silva’s side. Hence, Klopp’s praise suggests he holds a significant appreciation for the player.

Willian came to Arsenal from Chelsea on a free transfer in the 2020 window. At that time, the Brazilian was a player who could contribute substantial quality and vitality to Arsenal’s youthful squad. Hence, Mikel Arteta and Edu enticed him with an attractive to secure his services.

Nevertheless, Willian’s tenure at the Emirates was horrendous. With just one goal in 37 appearances for the Gunners, he faced widespread criticism and was a disappointment. After a single season at Arsenal, both parties, Willian and the Gunners, mutually agrees that it was time to go different ways. Hence, he left Arsenal as a free player.

What did Klopp say about Willian?

Despite his underwhelming performance at the Emirates, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp holds Willian in high regard. Thus, considering him among the greatest players the Premier League ever witnessed.

Klopp said about Willian:

“How they set it up with, I don’t know, Jimenez now up front or whoever will play, or Vinicius and then you have one of the greatest players the Premier League ever saw still going and going and going.”

Following a disappointing stint at Arsenal and a similarly unsatisfactory period with Corinthians in Brazil, it seemed like Willian’s career had reached its conclusion. At the age of 34 last year, Fulham took a chance by signing him on a free transfer. Despite skepticism at the time, Willian has managed to defy expectations and perform admirably for the club.

At 35 years old, Willian has already scored three goals this current season. He continues to pose a significant threat in attack, and his ball-playing prowess remains intact. While Liverpool may be the favorites in the upcoming match against Fulham, if Willian delivers a standout performance, Fulham could potentially cause an upset.
