Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba reacted to Willian’s contract termination at Arsenal on Monday, with a funny post jeering at the London fans.
Willian, 33, announced he was leaving Arsenal despite having two years left on his deal, with the Brazilian opting to link up with his boyhood club, Corinthians.
In the wake of Willian’s departure, Drogba took to his Twitter handle to welcome the player back to Chelsea.
Willian confirmed his departure by stating: “Thank you Arsenal.”
Drogba, who played at Stamford Bridge alongside Willian, replied: “Oh Willyyyyyyyyyyyyyy haaaaaaaannnnnnnnnn Come back home.”
Drogba recently took to his social media pages to praise Chelsea after they beat Arsenal 2-0 in a Premier League match.
“Arsenal vs Chelsea same old story. My team strong, real strong Chelsea,” Drogba tweeted with a laughing emoji.
However, Willian, who made 38 appearances for the Emirates club during the 2020-21 campaign, expressed regret that things did not go as planned.
“I would like to thank Arsenal for the opportunity they have given to me and for the warm welcome received by everybody at the club.
“Unfortunately things on the pitch didn’t go the way we had all planned and hoped. I received a lot of criticism, especially from some members of the press that I had come here for financial reasons. I hope with my actions today explain to those people and they now understand that was not the case.
“I hope it teaches some people that they should not be so quick to pass judgement or create bad environments to make themselves important, even though I accept that’s part of the game.
“All my career I have done everything to be the best I can be. I always want to win and I find it hard to accept not doing so. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen for me at Arsenal and I am sorry about that.
“I came to England in 2013 and I have enjoyed every minute of my time here. I want to thank everyone who had helped me along the way to play in this wonderful league that is full of heart and spirit,” he said.
