Willian Reveals He is To Inherit Shirt from Departed Hazard

Willian claims he will be inheriting the Chelsea number ten shirt from Eden Hazard, with Christian Pulisic seemingly set to fill a different jersey.

A new arrival at Stamford Bridge would have seemed a logical choice to fill the boots of a departed star turn in West London.

Hazard has completed a big-money move to Real Madrid, leaving behind a sizeable void.

“Number ten is now mine. The club has said it will change [my shirt number] and it will be mine,” Willian said.

The Brazil international is accustomed to filling that shirt and is looking forward to stepping into Hazard’s shoes.

He added: “I have always liked playing with number ten."

“Since I was a kid playing indoors football, I have always used the number ten. At Corinthians I was also number ten.”
