Willian has urged Chelsea to recall Ruben Loftus-Cheek from his loan spell at Crystal Palace.
The Chelsea star has admitted he was baffled to learn Loftus-Cheek had been shipped out on loan.
Antonio Conte has spent much of the season complaining about Chelsea’ lack of spending and small squad, but the Italian decided Loftus-Cheek was surplus to requirements.
And Willian believes Conte should reverse that decision and bring Loftus-Cheek back to the club.
‘I don’t know why he is at Crystal Palace now – he has to come back,’ Willian said.
‘A very good player. He is strong, he has quality. He has a great future.’
Since linking up with Palace, Loftus-Cheek has earned himself his first call-up to the England squad. And the midfielder put in a man of the match performance against Germany last Friday in his senior debut.
