Brazilian defender Thiago Silva left PSG and joined Chelsea as a free agent in this transfer window.
“Chelsea has a beautiful story. I think if you ask 90% of the players if they want to play for Chelsea, they will answer that yes. I was no exception,” Thiago Silva told BBC Sport.
“I was inspired by this project with cool football players, with the signing of great newcomers and excellent coaching staff, and a coach against whom I was lucky enough to play. I am very proud to be a member of this squad.”
“I never thought that one day Lampard would become my coach. I could imagine that he would choose this path, but not with me on his team. But if Frank didn’t believe in me, I wouldn’t be here.”
