Chelsea midfielder Willian loses Mum



Chelsea’s Brazilian star Willian has turned to social media following the death of his mum – Maria Jose Borges da Silva.

Willian’s mum passed away on Wednesday after her two-year battle against a brain tumor.

She was only 57.

Willian, who was in Canada at the time, has since returned to Sao Paulo for the funeral.

What’s clear is that the midfielder will not be involved in this weekend’s Premier League match against Leicester at Stamford Bridge.

The Chelsea star has posted a poem on social media alongside a black and white picture of Willian next to his mum.

The poem translates as follows:

In the sky is your place
Where will you be now
Where do you live
Left you so much
After you left here
Just asking
Because I’m so sure
It is in heaven that you are
Yeah near Jesus Christ
I’m sure it’s your place.
Because for you to be holy
You don’t need canonize
Just be the mother that was
To Sanctify.
Don’t think I’m hurt
By punishments to me data
Because between the mother and son
Always all is forgiven.
Can you believe that I’m fine
Because between the punishment and love
Did you do with that I would follow
Definitely a good way.
I miss you so much
That’s true
But I still accept
Because we live together
For all eternity.
I’m still here on earth
To his teachings to be faithful
So I can like you
Also have the kingdom of heaven.
Then we’ll meet
Have detached from the earth
To participate
Dreamed of eternal life.
