This is a very “interesting” way to “celebrate” your team’s FA Cup triumph: altering the team photo to cover up the manager with emojis. It’s exactly what Chelsea forward Willian did, placing emojis over his manager Antonio Conte in his Instagram post following the Blues’ 1-0 win over Manchester United in the FA Cup final
While Conte is widely believed to be leaving the club now that the season is over, he still remains the boss for the time being, and thus shouldn’t be disrespected as such. Especially so after just winning silverware for the club; take a look:

Obviously wasn’t best pleased about being left out the side!

Ok, so what is the motivation here for such bizarre social media behavior? Well, Willian has started just one match since his storming down the tunnel after being subbed off in the FA Cup semifinal win over Southampton. It’s been reported that a fair amount of tension exists between Willian and Conte.
Then you also have the Willian to Manchester United transfer rumors that have persisted for some time. United manager Jose Mourinho remains a very public admirer of his former player, and check out their greeting on Saturday.
I think it’s safe to say Willian is gone in the summer, he refused to give an interview before and after the match. He didn’t celebrate and left the stadium super early. Only time he was happy was when he met Jose. pic.twitter.com/aDzx4rB68f

Willian and Conte may not need to co-exist much longer, and it could be that both, not just one, will be out the Stamford Bridge door this summer.
