WILLIAN has been left red-faced after a claim he made upon signing for Arsenal came back to haunt him.
The Brazilian winger, 32, left Chelsea for the Emirates last summer.
Fans were expecting a lot from the star after his impressive debut against Fulham but the attacker only managed to produce six assists all season and ONE goal, in the final game of the campaign.
Willian is now being linked with a transfer away from the Gunners after just 12 months at the club.
But some of the words he spoke upon joining the North London side have now left him looking foolish.

Willian said: “One of the reasons I wanted a three-year deal was to be part of a plan.
“When I talked with the manager he told me why he needed me for three years.
“He first wanted to qualify for the Champions League and win it by the time I left. That’s what I wanted to hear.”
Arsenal missed out on European football for the first time in 25 years after finishing eighth in the Premier League.
And now his old side Chelsea have rubbed salt in the wound after their epic victory on Saturday.
