“We are very lucky to have him at the club” – John Terry lavishes praise on Chelsea star who keeps things ‘simple’



Chelsea legend John Terry has lauded Blues defender Thiago Silva, with the Brazilian continuing to impress for the side. Silva joined Chelsea at the age of 35 in 2020 on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain.

 Many had doubts about the fitness and adaptability he would have in signing for a top Premier League club. But his performances have been befitting of a player in his prime, certainly not one near the end of his playing career.

The Brazilian defender has amassed 63 appearances for the Blues and has also scored five and assisted two goals. He has become one of manager Thomas Tuchel's most important players and Terry believes the side are lucky to have him. Terry answered a question on his Instagram praising the Brazilian. He said (via Metro ):

"Absolutely love him. To be playing so well at his age in the best league is unbelievable. We are very lucky to have him at the club. He does everything so well without taking any risk and keeping things simple. We are very lucky to have him at the club."

During his own Chelsea career, Terry became a legend for the club. He captained the side to the UEFA Champions League in 2012 as well as five Premier League titles and as many FA Cups.

 Many feel Silva replicates Terry's defensive dominance, with Chelsea having majorly improved since his arrival in 2020.
