Chelsea winger Willian has opened up on what is was like as a kid back in Brazil.
As he has launched a new documentary series called 'Dream and Glories', the player recalls one moment when he realised that he had played football with a broken foot:
"One day I played a lot, went to bed and the next day I couldn’t stand.
"My mum came to wake me up for school and she said: “Put your feet on the ground.” I tried but I couldn’t. Then we found out I had a broken foot.
"Even then I kept on playing. It is all about playing football.
"I used to play and break windows on the house. My mum would always fix them.
"I would break the glass and she would fix them. She started to tape the windows with plastic bags! I would always break them and it was getting expensive."
"My family was pretty poor. My parents always worked very hard so we wouldn't go without. We'd have food and everything.
"When I wasn't training, my dad would make me train. He'd take me to the field and make me kick with my left leg. I didn't like using my left leg, I was used to the right one."
