World class Defender Drops Huge Chelsea Hint

Thiago silva
Chelsea praised for Silva signing

CHELSEA FC defender Thiago Silva admits his career is ‘almost over’, with the Brazilian likely to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.

The 39-year-old joined the club from Paris Saint-Germain in 2020 and has made 142 appearances for the club in his time in west London, despite the fact that many doubted that he could cut it in the Premier League.

He has become a firm fans favourite Stamford Bridge and proven time and time again that he really is one of the best central defenders of his generation – but it seems that his time at the club may be over at the end of the season.

Silva admits that, with his deal close to expiring, his career is almost at its end: ‘I don’t have anything scheduled for later, I’m just looking to have fun,’ Silva said following Chelsea’s win against Middlesbrough.

‘We know it’s almost over, but it’s not the end yet. So pick the right time. I’m still able to maintain a good performance, my numbers are good, and this gives me peace of mind to continue. Now, the future belongs to God.

‘Let’s finish well here, these four months and see what happens going forward, but I’m super relaxed about that.’

‘[I am] happier because of the team’s performance and now with another final at Wembley,’ he said.

‘If I’m not mistaken I went there three times. I lost all three. So I think it’s time to win. There is still time until that game.

‘We work hard to win. On the other side there are also teams that do the same thing. I think that when we play at such a high level, the small detail make the difference. I lost two finals against Liverpool, both on penalties, but they were the best games to watch because the two teams played in a very open and frank way.

‘I’m not saying it way bad luck, but it’s something that happens in football when you are looking for titles. I think the group has strengthened since because we are together every day and we feel the need to win again. That is the most important thing, and we have that possibility once again.’
