Despite the fact that Antonio Conte was still the manager of Chelsea Football Club at the time, Willian decided to make a massive dig at the Italian on social media, back in May.
Willian, who for the majority struggled for first team football under Conte, seemingly took his anger out at the 49-year-old after the FA Cup final win against Manchester United by covering his entire body with trophy emoji's.
Plenty put two and two together and blamed a strained relationship, but it turns out there's a reason behind the edited picture.
Two months after the picture was posted on Instagram, the Brazilian has revealed that his daughter was to blame.
"My daughter was playing with my cell phone and she ended up putting those emojis over Conte," Willian told ESPN Brasil.
"After the final I got a plane right after the game to come to Brazil. When I got here, early in the morning, I was posting some pictures of the champions and, well, I was a bit too tired and ended up posting them like that."

Hours before the cup final, Willian further hinted that he was unhappy at Stamford Bridge during another interview with ESPN.
When asked how happy he is with the Italian, Willian replied: "Oh boy! Do you really want me to tell you?"
It's no secret that Willian doesn't like Conte. He's been in & out of the team over the last two years & probably didn't appreciate the way Costa & Luiz were treated either. This isn't a good look though #cfc- Liam Twomey (@liam_twomey) May 20, 2018
Do you think Willian was disrespectful to his manager in 'that' Instagram post? What do you reckon to his recent revelation?
