Willian makes a splash with swimming pool trick shot

Willian’s samba skills are not limited to just the football pitch.

The Chelsea star has uploaded a video of himself hitting an audacious overhead kick into a basketball net while in a swimming pool.

In the video, the 26-year-old burst out laughing as his effort came off perfectly.

Willian also added the caption “LeBron Willian James!!! Hahahaha”, in reference to NBA icon LeBron James.

The Brazilian has been an integral part of Jose Mourinho’s set-up at Chelsea this season, making 21 appearances for the Premier League leaders.

He is racing to be fit for the Blues’ clash against Aston Villa on Saturday, after picking up a minor knock in the 1-1 draw with title-rivals Manchester City last week.
