In an interview with ESPN Brazil, Willian discussed race, where he made it known that he’d like to see significant changes that prevent these incidents in the future. Despite the Premier League trying to spotlight the subject, there continues to be racial abuse towards the black players in England.Furthermore, Willian adds that heading forward, he wants to see the Premier League do more than the kneel gestures denouncing racism. Players began kneeling over the summer to spotlight and condemn the racial abuse players face in football—however, the lack of measures taking place as to why Willian no longer kneels.
