Chelsea ace Willian: Why it's so good to play for Lampard

Chelsea ace Willian admits he's enjoyed playing for manager Frank Lampard.

Willian admits he appreciates the freedom to make mistakes Lampard offers him.

"Lampard I know well, in my first year, I had the privilege of playing with him," explained Willian to ESPN Brasil.

“It's been very good, I'm really enjoying it [playing under Lampard].

“From the beginning, he gave me a lot of confidence. When you have a coach who has confidence, who makes you feel important, it helps performance.

"Because you miss one, two, even three passes and the coach continues to trust you. The player needs this."
