Tear-jerking moment Willian is reunited with his dad after tearing up Arsenal contract and signing for Corinthians

WILLIAN shared a tear-jerking moment with his father after the pair were reunited in Brazil.

The winger, 33, sacrificed up to £20million in wages in order to rip up his Arsenal contract and return to his home country.


And upon his arrival in Brazil, Willian experienced a very special moment.

Having signed for Corinthians, the former Chelsea ace returned to his home country.

He was greeted by his father, who visibly welled up as he got to hug his boy.

The pair enjoyed a lengthy embrace upon being reunited.

Willian could now see out his career at his boyhood club, having penned a two-year deal.

Upon leaving Arsenal, Willian apologised to Gunners fans for not being able to show his best form at the Emirates.

But his agent Kia Joorabchian has been scathing of the North Londoners.

He told talkSPORT: "Which player has moved to Arsenal that has not been a disaster in the last couple of years? That one I speak as a fan."

The 50-year-old then added: "When he joined, he sincerely joined because he was very much at the centre of Arteta’s thinking.

"Arteta made several presentations to Willian and made it clear he would be the focus point of how he would build the team around him.

"Willian had an offer from Chelsea to extend for two more years, but he wanted three years and he made the move. Unfortunately it didn’t work out for him.

"I don’t think this is about Willian. I think something has gone wrong [at Arsenal] and this is just one piece of the puzzle."
