Thiago Silva will now be in action to take on Brighton in their next game on the weekend
Chelsea star Thiago Silva is under fire after poor performances in the Premier League. Rio Ferdinand has responded to criticisms of the 39-year-old. Silva had a poor outing against Newcastle.
Thiago Silva became Chelsea’s oldest-ever player when he featured at the weekend. He made few mistakes at St James Park and Chelsea lost 4-1 to suffer another defeat.

Rio Ferdinand said, “At 36, 37 I was on the way to A&E after almost every game I was in so much pain. It was hard. I don’t know how Thiago Silva is doing it. It’s unreal. You’ve got to respect his professionalism. He’s had a bad game this weekend, who cares?”
Chelsea will now face Brighton in their next game on the weekend. They moved to 10th in the top flight after the defeat to Newcastle.
Thiago Silva is also looking to leave the Stamford Bridge and he may think about the potential departure in the summer of 2024. Some top clubs are monitoring his progress at Chelsea.
