Born Again Willian Gets Baptised In River Jordan
By Nigel Philips
Willian Borges da Silva, a born again Christian has been baptised in River Jordan as the act is an inevitable part of the religion.
The Bible claims Jesus Christ was baptised in the River Jordan, a symbolic and a holy place in the world for those of the Christian faith.
More than half a million tourists and pilgrims visit the river every year to be baptised in its waters, even if they have already undergone the practice elsewhere in the past.
The Brazilian is on holiday in Israel and posted snaps of the event to his popular Instagram account.
Willian wrote the caption: “Joy in reaffirming my baptism, in a place that I consider extremely important. Jordan river!”
Former Chelsea teammate Diego Costa responded to the snaps with a smiley emoji. While Spurs rival and Brazil pal Lucas Moura replied: “Glory to God! How wonderful, my brother. I’ll still know this place.”
Willian has plenty to smile about as he prepares to extend his Stamford Bridge stay with his current contract expected to run out in 2020.
But the Blues are ready to hand him a deal until 2021 after being hit with a transfer ban.
They do not want to risk the possibility of losing Willian for nothing if they are unable to sign players next summer.
However, he would prefer a three-year contract as he is ready to commit his future to the Blues with the side set to lose Maurizio Sarri while his fellow blue Eden Hazard is on the brink of joining Real Madrid.
