Thiago Silva will be doing a “perfect job” for Chelsea, predicted Rivaldo while he is sure that the ex-Paris Saint-Germain player will become a “commanding voice” in Frank Lampard’s squad.
Rivaldo, a Brazil star, told Betfair: “At 35, Thiago Silva will sign with Chelsea for two seasons and I’m sure he’ll do a fantastic job there because he’s a wonderful center back with superb handling and vast world football knowledge.”
“I think he always comes with something to give. I will trust him to produce good Premier League football and to be a major figure in the still inexperienced squad of Frank Lampard.”
“Nowadays, many players continue their careers until their late thirties and Silva is a good example of this. You will comfortably compete at the maximum standard until 36, 37 years old if you hold yourself in good physical shape.”
