Ace Chelsea defender, Thiago Silva has admitted that he feels honoured working with manager Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge.
The Brazilian defender joined the London Club on a free transfer during the summer and has already established himself in the heart of Chelsea’s defense. With Thiago Silva, Chelsea managed to concede just four goals in his eight appearances this far.

“It is a source of pride to be coached by a player I played against and was one of the greatest midfielders in the world. For me, it is very joyful to share locker rooms, exchange ideas, and I look to help him in any way that I can.”
