Blues winger says 'we know the more we stand still, the more we lose physical condition.'
Willian may have played his last game for Frank Lampard' Blues, with his contract due to expire in June.
Chelsea star Willian is hoping the west London club grant him permission to return to Brazil as he is keen to be with his family amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Blues winger's current deal is due to expire in June, but he recently stated that he would be happy to represent Chelsea even if he is not contracted to them.
However, Willian is not happy that he is currently separated from his family and is desperate to return to South America as the COVID-19 outbreak continues.
While speaking to Brazilian channel Globo SporTV, the Shakhtar Donetsk forward said: "At the moment, I’m alone. My wife and daughters are in Brazil.
"I had made a schedule before that. They went first, I was going to have a break and I was going too. Now, I’m checking here, if I have authorisation from the club.
"We’re deciding, they are about to come back here, but as there was a meeting and there was a definition here, they postponed the league until April 30th… With that fact, I’m trying to get permission from the club to be able to go.
"I explained the situation, I’m trying to get authorisation. I heard that players from other clubs are going to Brazil too, maybe being close to the family at this moment."
Willian continued: "We know the more we stand still, the more we lose physical condition. I’ve been home for six days, I don’t have much structure to do the exercises I wanted to do.
"Even in my building there’s a gym, but I can’t go there to do it, I have to stay indoors. It ends up making it a little difficult, but I think it will be good, we have to think about people. If everyone does their part well, it will be over.
"It’s a difficult time for everyone. People are starting to stay indoors, a lot of things are being closed, schools will also stop. So it’s a time to be supportive of others."
