Thiago Silva’s experience will surely come in handy in a Chelsea side that is undergoing a rebuilding process
Thiago Silva has signed a one-year extension with Chelsea. The Brazilian will lead a young Chelsea side for at least until the 2023-24 season.
Silva couldn’t even imagine staying at Chelsea for 4 seasons
The Blues have secured Thiago Silva’s services for another year. The Brazilian veteran defender joined the club from PSG back in 2020, making this his fourth year at Stamford Bridge.
“I am honestly so happy to continue my career with the Blues,” Silva told Chelsea’s official website.
“When I signed my first contract here, it was to just do one year. Now it is already the fourth!
“I could not have imagined that, but really it is a very special moment for me to sign and stay at Chelsea.”
Chelsea chairman Todd Boehly and co-controlling owner Behdad Eghbali also rejoiced in Silva’s signing, adding: “We’re delighted that Thiago has decided to continue with Chelsea.
“He’s a world-class talent, as he’s proven over many years for club and country, and his experience, quality and leadership skills are vital to our vision going forward.
“We’re thrilled he has extended his contract with us, and we look forward to more success with him ahead.”
The 38-year-old Silva who has previously played for AC Milan and PSG, has represented Chelsea in 74 Premier League games. The Brazilian has won a Champions League, a Club World Cup and a UEFA Supercup in his time with the Blues.
