Thiago Silva was questioned about his Chelsea move in 2020.
The Brazilian defender has led his national side with an unbeaten start to the tournament.
He also captained the Chelsea side on several occasions and is seemingly enjoying his time in the Premier League.
Silva said to TribalFootball: “It was a tough time when I left PSG.
“Although I was sure my qualities were intact, I know that others doubted me and whether the decision to switch to Chelsea was the right one. It culminated in us winning the Champions League in 2021. It was the perfect way to disprove people who doubted.”
Silva has entered the final year of his Chelsea contract and the Blues would likely want to offer him a contract extension.
“I can tell you that what is important is to continue playing at a high level and help the team to achieve the best possible results,” said Silva ahead of the World Cup. “For sure, there will be a time when we need to talk, it could be before the World Cup or after the World Cup because I need to know whether I will have a new contract with Chelsea for my family arrangements.
“If I don’t have a new contract, I will have to decide what to do. For my family it’s an important decision. We will see what happens.”
