Digital Sports Group today announced that it has launched a new Facebook page for Chelsea and Brazil midfielder Willian.
On 25 August 2013, English Premier League side Chelsea agreed a deal to sign Willian from Russian Premier League side Anzhi Makhachkala, subject to a work permit hearing on 28 August 2013. The deal was made official on 28 August 2013 and Willian signed a five-year contract receiving the number 22 shirt.
He made his debut on 18 September against FC Basel in the UEFA Champions League in a 1-2 home defeat. After featuring in wins against Swindon Town and Steaua Bucharest in the League Cup and UEFA Champions League respectively, he made his Premier League debut on 6 October away to Norwich City, and scored in a 3–1 win. He scored his second Chelsea goal on 1 January 2014 in a 3–0 victory at Southampton.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait has this to say “Since joining from Anzhi in the summer Willian has been a tremendous asset to Chelsea. We are extremely proud of our relationship with the Professional Footballers Asscociation (PFA) and will be producing great content you will not find anywhere else for the official PFA Facebook page for Willian. Fans will also have the unique opportunity to have their say with the prestigious FTBPro PFA Fans Player of the Month award. ”
Jason Hope, Content Manager of DSG believes Willian will play a vital role in any potential success Chelsea have this season “The stats don't lie and the fact that Willian has created 37 chances in just 17 games suggests that his form will directly affect Chelsea's title chances and other cup credentials. We are excited to have been given the opportunity to build and help manage this PFA Facebook page.”
