A couple of old tweets reveal that Tottenham bound Willian is a Chelsea fan
Tottenham fans are currently doing plenty of homework on Brazilian international Willian ahead of the player’s confirmation as a new Spurs player.
As part of the research, one of the more interesting pieces of information being passed around is that Willian supported Chelsea during their 2012 Champions League final win over Bayern Munich.
Willian posted a couple of on May 20th, 2012 saying “Come on Chelsea” and “Parabens Chelsea” (congratulations) as the Blues beat the Bavarians in a dramatic penalty shootout.
It goes without saying that Chelsea and Tottenham fans don’t like each other very much.
Willian’s tweets showing support for Chelsea are below.
