The 37-year-old centre-half scored the final goal for the team at Stamford Bridge in a solid defensive streak, with Redknapp hailing it as a great signing.at all ufabet.
“We talk about great players and great signings, it’s a really great signing,” said Redknapp.
“A few people doubted him because of his age. But he’s amazing, he’s a Rolls-Royce, and he has to have a great influence on the other players in the dressing room.
This season, Thiago Silva has made 26 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals and providing two assists, having made 60 appearances since joining the club, scoring 5 goals and providing 2 assists.
Genius Chelsea transfer
For Chelsea, they played an absolute blinder by signing Silva on a free transfer in 2020.
The centre-half is 18 months into his spell at Stamford Bridge, and he’s already building quite the Blues legacy.
Of course, his key strength is what he’s providing at the back in Thomas Tuchel’s defence. He’s such a reliable figure at the back who’s delivering at least 7/10 performances every time he steps on the pitch.
He’s a big attacking threat, too. It’s now three Premier League goals for him already this season.
It’s fair enough that people questioned the signing when he joined so late in his career, but he definitely doesn’t play like he’s 37.
