Chelsea defender Thiago Silva reacts after signing contract extension

Thiago Silva, the Brazilian centre-back, has signed a contract extension with Chelsea, valid until June 2024. The experienced defender who joined Chelsea from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2020 has been a standout player for the club since his arrival.

His solidity at the back has been instrumental in Chelsea’s success, and his new contract is a testament to his importance to the club. This season, he has been the lone shining light in what has been such a disappointing season for the Blues.

The 36-year-old defender has been a vital part of the club’s defence, providing stability and experience to the backline. His leadership qualities have also been crucial, as he has been able to mentor the younger players in the team.

Silva has made a significant impact on the club since his arrival, helping the team to reach the FA Cup final, where they defeated Leicester City. He has also played an important role in the club’s Champions League campaign, where they reached the final, and eventually beat Manchester City.

The Brazilian defender has also won the hearts of Chelsea fans with his passionate performances on the pitch and his engaging personality off the field. He has quickly become a fan favourite, and his new contract has been met with excitement and delight by Chelsea supporters.

Speaking about signing a contract extension, here is what Thiago Silva had to say about staying at Chelsea and renewing his deal.

“When I signed my first contract here, it was to just do one year. Now it is already the fourth! It’s very special moment for me to sign and stay at Chelsea”

Silva has been a model professional, both on and off the field. He has shown dedication to the club and its values and has been a leader both on and off the field. His new contract is a testament to the hard work and effort he has put in since his arrival.

The Brazilian veteran continues being so important to Graham Potter and Chelsea. It is sometimes astounding to think that he is performing at such a high level at such an age in one of the most physical leagues in the world.
