“He’s bad for football,” Brazil’s manager admits
After leaving Paris Saint-Germain, where he made 315 appearances in eight seasons, the centre-back joined the Blues on a free transfer in the summer of 2020.
Silva is now in his third season at Chelsea, and despite his age, the 38-year-old is still performing to the highest level.
During his time at the club, he has won the Champions League, Super Cup, and Club World Cup, with the possibility of more silverware this season.
Silva’s contract was set to expire this summer, but he signed a contract extension at the start of the year, keeping him in west London until next year.
He is now on international duty for his country, having previously made 107 appearances for his country.
Brazil manager Tite commented on the experienced defender, who celebrated his 38th birthday on Thursday, via ge.
“”He’ll make an excellent coach,” he predicted. “He’s also bad for football.” Do you know why he’s a bad football player? Because he makes things look so simple when they’re actually quite difficult. “With impressive technical performance, he manages to make the clearest, most lucid, transparent decisions.”
Despite the fact that this could be his final season at the club, Silva has hinted that he may look to extend his stay.
In a recent interview with the club’s website, he stated: “I talk to Zlatan frequently, especially now that Chelsea is playing AC Milan in the Champions League.
Chelsea’s Thiago Silva in action. “My goal is to play until I’m 40, but I’m not sure if it will be at this level or in this competition.” “It is dependent on this season, and we will see what happens in the World Cup.” It is also contingent on a contract extension, but my goal is to play until I am 40.”
Since joining the Blues two years ago, the defender has made 89 appearances in all competitions with five goals from defense, he has shown that he can get himself on the scoresheet when his team needs one.
Silva has appeared in seven of Chelsea’s eight games this season, with the 1-0 loss to Dinamo Zagreb serving as his only absence.
He will now be managed by his third head coach at Stamford Bridge, Graham Potter, who was appointed recently following Thomas Tuchel’s departure.
Thiago Silva, Chelsea, and Brazil are some of the topics discussed.
