CHELSEA legend Didier Drogba told Willian to ‘come home’ after the Brazilian’s Arsenal exit.
But Blues fans reacted in horror to the idea of the winger returning to Stamford Bridge.
But following a disastrous debut season in which he scored just once, the winger has given up on around £20million in earnings in order to leave the Emirates.
Following confirmation of Willian’s Gunners exit, former Chelsea team-mate Drogba, 43, wrote on Twitter: “Oh Willyyyyyyyyyyyyyy haaaaaaaannnnnnnnnn Come back home.”
Blues fans, jedoch, were having none of it.
One replied: “Didier no chill out man.”
While a second commented: “Drogba please don’t give him ideas.”
