Willian's family 'scared to leave house in Brazil over social media threats as ex-Chelsea star hires security guard'

FORMER Chelsea and Arsenal star Willian and his family are reportedly “scared to leave their house” following threats made on social media.

The 33-year-old winger is back playing in his Brazilian homeland with Corinthians.

Although his loved ones are allegedly considering moving out of the country due to huge concerns for their safety.

That is according to ESPN, who claims the terrifying situation has arisen due to Corinthians suffering a shock defeat to Bolivian side Always Ready in the CONMEBOL Libertadores earlier this month.

Cops were called in to investigate after several players were threatened following the loss.

And one of those was the two-time Premier League winner with Chelsea.
