Willian has named Reece James as his favorite current Chelsea FC player and is tipping the full-back to develop into one of the best right-backs in the world in the coming years.
It was interesting to hear his takes on the current squad – he knows most of them very well, especially some of the youngsters who will have been knocking around for years while the Brazilian was at the club.
He was asked who his favorite players in the squad were, and he picked out three academy products to start with.
“(Callum) Hudson-Odoi, Mason Mount, Reece James,” the winger said;
“I think Reece James [is my favorite]. I like him. He’s a very good player. I think he can be one of the best right-backs in the world in a few years.”
Who are we to disagree? If Willian thinks James can be the best in the world.
