Willian who is a Brazilian footballer playing for Arsenal has stated clearly that he is still learning many things at the Emirates stadium under the Gunners’ manager Mikel Arteta.
Willian on Mikel Arteta: "I've not worked with a coach with that mindset. The positional game doesn’t mean that you have no freedom. You have freedom to move, but many times you have to respect the position, what the coach asks, understanding that it’ll be better for the team." pic.twitter.com/HVbyToFhcW
