Tuchel Delighted At Thiago Sylva Contract Extension

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has expressed delight at the contract extension the club signed with defender Thiago Sylva.

The new contract will see the former Paris St-Germain defender stay at Stamford Bridge until 2023.

Speaking during a pre-match conference ahead of the club’s Carabao Cup semi-final game, Tuche said of Sylva, “He’s like Benjamin Button. Thiago Button the footballer!.

“But I know how much work and professional attitude is behind that. It is a miracle, in a way, because he came to this league, with the schedule and the approach and the intensity on a daily basis at the very end of his career, which was very brave.

“We are happy because the new contract makes him calm.

“Thiago needs to be calm because he is a sensitive and emotional person. That makes him so precious for our team and our dressing room. He can feel different states of emotions from others, and can help so much with this.”
