Chelsea midfielder Willian is determined to put his past troubles at Chelsea under former manager Antonio Conte behind him.

The Brazilian appeared frustrated last season prior to Conte’s sack from the club.

Reports suggested that Willian would leave Chelsea in the summer and the player recently gave credence to the reports when he revealed that he would have left if Conte had remained in charge.

However, the player appears to be enjoying life under new manager Maurizio Sarri.

He was not keen on talking about the past when he was questioned in a news conference ahead of Chelsea’s Europa League game against PAOK.

“I don’t want to talk about the past,” Willian said.

“At the moment I’m happy, with a new manager, with a new profile of football. We have a great team atmosphere, we have great players. We can do everything this season to win titles.

“I am very proud to stay and be a Chelsea player. It’s an honour to play for this club. I am very happy at Chelsea.

“Everyone knows what happened in the last window, but my mind was always at Chelsea.”

Chelsea were champions of the competition in 2013 and are among the favorites for a triumph in the competition this term.

“The way we play we can try to win titles. We want to start well and win this competition as well, so we go for it,” Willian said.
