Chelsea attacker Willian feels the English star Tammy Abraham’s great form is helping to ease the pain of the Blues losing superstar Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.
The Belgian left Chelsea in a €100 million (£88 million) transfer after his 21 goals and 17 assists across all competitions last season, with question marks lingering over the club’s attacking threat without the forward.
Abraham has, however, scored seven goals in his last three PL games to suggest he can be his club’s new main attacking star, and the young forward will be looking to add to his tally versus Liverpool on Sunday.
“I think Hazard’s exit was a big loss,” Brazil international told Goal when asked about the west London club’s attacking prowess.
“Eden is a player that can make the difference, but I think we have players that can continue to make the difference as well.
“Abraham is playing well at the moment. He is scoring lots of goals and I am very happy for him.”
Willian’s success in his professional career hasn’t been lost on him and he is interested in giving something back.
The 31-year-old star has begun an online course to help his compatriots from poor backgrounds get into football, with profits transferring to his charitable foundation to help disadvantaged children.
The South American is working with entrepreneurs Rafael Alves and Hellen Grasso, alongside Vanessa Martins, the player’s wife, and he is keen to make an impact off the pitch with Willian’s new project, which was launched at Chelsea on Sunday.
