Chelsea winger Willian enjoyed goalscoring performance

Chelsea winger Willian is aiming to kickstart his Premier League career after Sunday's appearance at Norwich City.

Willian came off the bench to score in the 3-1 win.

"That was a very good experience for me," he explained to Chelsea Magazine. "Of course at the beginning it was very difficult because as you can imagine, I was only 19 and leaving by myself to live in a foreign country that was not only a totally different place in terms of culture, but also where the weather was always cold.

"However I think it was a great experience because it helped me to become the man that I am today. Now, at the age of 25, I have already taken on a lot of responsibilities in my life.

"I'm a married father of two girls and this time in Donetsk helped me to gain life experience as well as understand a different culture.

"It was very daunting to move there, but I don't have any regrets - I had lots of joy in my years over there and now I hope to develop further with Chelsea."
