Willian: Why I’m yet to adapt to Arsenal’s ‘football philosophy’

Arsenal winger, Willian believes he is struggling to find his best form as he has not yet adapted to his new club’s playstyle.

Willian signed a three-year deal on a free transfer from Chelsea in the summer.

But the 32-year-old has only managed three assists this term, with two coming in the very first league game of the season.

Willian told the club’s official match-day programme ahead: “Well it’s never easy changing club, especially after being somewhere for so long.

“I was at Chelsea for seven years before coming to Arsenal and then you have a new club, new people, a new philosophy.

“Things are different so I’m still adapting but I feel good, I have been learning a lot – a new footballing philosophy.

“Everyone is great here. I know I can improve a lot, and of course my performances on the pitch can be a lot better.”

He added: “The first game was great for me, against Fulham, I felt I had a good performance and gave two assists. And then, I don’t know.

“I’m always trying to do my best, sometimes things don’t go the way you want. You have to say it’s a part of football and a part of life.

“Sometimes you have good moments, other times you have bad moments, you have to learn from that.

“And right now, I know I’m far away from being at my best, but I’m determined to work hard and change this.”
