Chelsea midfielder Willian says he is a big fan of Michael Jackson and love theatre very much. He takes his culture to his new home city.
Indeed, the Brazilian has admitted he’s become slightly obsessed with the West End over the past few months, having paid to see the Michael Jackson “Thriller” musical production more times than is probably necessary since he arrived in London in 2013.
“The first time I went to a musical in London I loved it, Now whenever I have free time I go. I’ve seen ‘Thriller Live’ more than 10 times. I like dancing a lot, and I’ve never seen anyone as good as Michael Jackson.” Willian told The Sun.
Someone should really put Willian in touch with Sergio Ramos, a man who has a silhouette of Smooth Criminal-era Jacko indelibly tattooed about his person.
Better/worse yet, former Fulham chairman Mohamed Al Fayed was so enamoured with the King of Pop that he had a huge statue of the man plonked right outside Craven Cottage after Jackson forged an eternal bond with the club by visiting their ground once in 1999.
They could all get together and start a little fan club; dressing up, working out dance routines and the like.
Wouldn’t that be nice?
