Chelsea Attacker Ruled Out Of Leicester City Clash

By on October 13, 2016

Chelsea attacker Willian is set to miss this weekends Premier League clash with Leicester City on compassionate grounds following the death of his mother, according to the Express.

The Brazilian international took to Instagram overnight to publish a poem [in his native Portuguese] in memory of his late mother following her death, with the Express reporting that Willian’s mother lost her battle against cancer.

Understandably, the 28-year-old is now expected to be granted permission to miss Saturday’s visit of defending champions Leicester to Stamford Bridge on compassionate leave.

While Chelsea didn’t confirm Willian’s absence this weekend, they did send their condolences to the midfielder and his family after posting the following message on Chelseafc.com:

“All of us at Chelsea Football Club are sending our love and deepest condolences to Willian and his family after the passing of his mother.

“We are thinking of you Willian.”

Willian started for Brazil in their World Cup qualifier against Venezuela on Tuesday night and scored the second goal during a 2-0 win that saw the Samba Boys move top of their qualifying group.

However, he’s now expected to remain in South America with his family following his mothers passing with Antonio Conte likely to choose between Pedro or Victor Moses to fill-in against Leicester this weekend.

Chelsea head in to the game sitting seventh in the table having won just one of their last four games but they’ll be looking to see-off the Foxes again having beaten them in the EFL Cup last month.

Mãe No céu é o seu lugar Onde estará você agora Onde é que você mora Deixou tanta saudade Depois que daqui foi embora Pergunto por perguntar Pois tenho tanta certeza É no céu que você está Pois perto de Jesus Cristo Com certeza é o seu lugar. Pois para você ser santa Não precisa canonizar Basta ser a mãe que foi Para se santificar. Não pense que estou magoado Pelos castigos a mim dados Pois entre a mãe e o filho Sempre tudo é perdoado. Pode acreditar que estou bem Pois entre o castigo e o carinho Você fez com que eu seguisse Com certeza um bom caminho. Sinto muito sua falta isso é verdade Mas ainda me conformo Pois iremos viver juntos Por toda eternidade. Continuo aqui na terra Aos seus ensinos ser fiel Para que possa como você Também ter o Reino do céu. Aí então nos encontraremos Já desprendidos da terra Para então participar Da sonhada vida eterna. #minhaguerreira #minharainha #teamoeternamente #saudades #luto
