Ben Chilwell has hailed Thiago Silva’s immediate impact at Chelsea after his summer move to the club.
The Brazilian may be 33-years of age, but he brings experience, quality and leadership at the back that the club have been lacking for a good few seasons now, and Lampard knew that he needed to sign a player like Silva to help improve the clubs chances of winning that Premier League title.
Another transfer signing Chilwell has now opened up and announced that he is delight that the club managed to secure a transfer deal for Silva, and has hailed the impact that the Brazilian has already had on this very youthful Blues squad.
Chilwell said on the Metro: “Ever since he came in the building, when he is in the room he has a presence about him.
“He makes everyone want to do well and standards will never slip, which they shouldn’t anyway.
“He demands quality and assures the whole team around him so it is great to have him in there with us, and he talks throughout the whole game.”
We have just said it, he brings experience, quality and leadership at the back that will go along way into helping the lads close the gap on the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City, who are two of the favourites to win the title this season.
He may not be at the club for very long and may not be the player that he was just a few seasons ago, but he is just the type of signing that will help the club in the immediate future.
He already has a big impact on this squad and by the end of the season, people will be praising the summer of Silva by Lampard, not doubting it.
