Willian is currently a very busy man.
Chelsea’s ace is fighting for the Copa America crown with Brazil and it appears he’s also doing some charity work on the side.
The Blues’ superstar recently shared a really powerful inspirational message on Instagram that invited people to contribute to a great cause and support a young man’s foundation.

The post was followed with a long message explaining the situation of a 17-year-old boy, who wants to make it as a professional football player but he needs help to get going.
The Brazilian winger decided to help him out and shared his foundation on social media, which was really well received by the public and the fans alike.
As far as Willian’s own career is concerned, Brazil have advanced to the knockout stages of the tournament and are now eagerly awaiting their next fixture against Paraguay.
Last season he scored three goals and provided seven assists in 32 Premier League appearances under Maurizio Sarri’s watch.
