Thiago Silva admitted he has mixed feelings after reuniting with former PSG boss, Thomas Tuchel.

Chelsea dropped Frank Lampard for the German coach this week.

Both Silva and Tuchel worked together in the Paris capital until last season. Silva said, “It’s been a tough week with the departure of one manager and the arrival of a new one. I have a really good relationship and get on well with them both.

“The six months I spent working with Frank were fantastic. And I had two unbelievable years with Tuchel in Paris too, including getting to the final of the Champions League.

“It’s been a really unique week for me, different to anything I’ve experienced before, because when managers have changed before, the incoming coach has never been someone I’ve already worked with, who I already have such a good relationship with.

“It’s always been new managers who I’ve not worked with before. So I’m left with mixed feelings. Sadness for one, happiness for the other.”

Chelsea drew their first game under Tuchel 0-0 against Wolves. The manager made striking changes to the starting lineup with some alarming omissions. Silva still enjoyed a starting berth next to controversial figure, Antonio Rudiger.
