Chelsea forward Willian has suggested that all is not well in the Stamford Bridge camp despite Saturday’s FA Cup final victory.
The Blues salvaged something from a poor season with the 1-0 win against Manchester United, a game in which Willian played the final few minutes as a late replacement for Eden Hazard.
While there was plenty of cause for celebration, however, a social media post by Willian hinted that there is an issue between himself and manager Antonio Conte.
In the post in question, the former Shakhtar Donetsk man published a photo of the Chelsea squad celebrating with the cup – but Conte has been blocked out of the photo by three strategically-placed trophies.
This follows an interview Willian carried out with ESPN this week in which, when asked about his relationship with Conte, he simply laughed and said “Do you really want me to tell you?”
Despite leading Chelsea to the FA Cup, his first cup win as a manger, Conte is widely expected to leave Stamford Bridge in the coming weeks. Last season’s Premier League champions could only manage a fifth-place finish in the league this time around, 30 points behind winners Manchester City and outside of the Champions League places.
