Expressing admiration for Willian’s current performance, Kulusevski considers him an unbelievable and underrated player.
Despite contrasting views, especially considering Willian’s lackluster stats at Arsenal, Kulusevski’s perspective highlights the varied opinions on player assessments in football.
