‘He’s got everything’ Kurt Zouma hails impact of new world class leader at Chelsea after October move

Kurt Zouma has opened up and hailed the impact that Thiago Silva has made at Chelsea since his move to Stamford Bridge.

Silva helped PSG reach the Champions League final last year after another impressive season for the French side, but despite the contract offers that they wanted to offer the Brazilian, he opted to leave the club on a free contract.

That led to Chelsea making a move and offering him a short-term contract with the club, as Frank Lampard knew that he needed to add a world class defender that has real leadership abilities to his back-line.

And Zouma has opened up on the new Chelsea defender, he was quoted on the Metro: ‘You can see straightaway, as soon as he walked through the door at Cobham, he gives advice to the players around him, he’s really good with people and you can definitely see he has very good leadership skills. ‘Everyone has welcomed Thiago into the group and we are all happy he’s with us at Chelsea.’

‘I’m very excited to work with Thiago, but I don’t think I’m the only one, a lot of the guys here at Chelsea feel exactly the same. ‘We are all excited to play with him and to learn from him.

He’s got great experience at the highest level, he’s won a lot of titles and last season he played in the Champions League final.

‘For me, he’s got everything. He’s calm on the ball, he can defend very well, his positioning is great. I’m very happy he’s here and excited to learn from him.’

Silva is a world class defender that has played at the very highest level for many seasons now, so even though he has not had the best of starts to life at Chelsea, by the end of the season, he will be hailed as a great signing by the club.

And it will also give players like Zouma the opportunity to learn from one of the best.
