Thiago Silva was crucial in the road to the club’s Champions League glory.
Chelsea veteran Thiago Silva makes reassuring comments about his future at Stamford Bridge and hails Thomas Tuchel amidst contract issues.
While speaking to the club’s programme, as quoted by football.london, the Blues star admired Thomas Tuchel and claimed that he is going to continue working hard with Tuhcel amidst a contract stalemate.
The Chelsea man arrived at Chelsea last summer. The Brazilian was bedded into the line-up by Frank Lampard as the centre-back formed a great partnership with Kurt Zouma. After Lampard’s departure, the 37-year-old continued to form a pivotal part of the squad under his former PSG boss.

Thiago Silva said, “If I did not have ambitions and dreams, then there is no way I would be where I am here at Chelsea. I’m here because I have got that desire to go out and win and achieve more things… So, right now, I am just working as hard as I can and putting everything into my desire to reach the end of my career with all those dreams and ambitions fulfilled.”
He also added his thought for Tuchel, “Tuchel is an excellent coach. Tactically, technically, and on the mental side, he is first-rate, but the other thing about him is how he is as a human being. He really just is an incredible guy.”
The 37-year-old has also scored on multiple occasions this season, with his latest header coming against West Ham at the London stadium.
