Chelsea defender Thiago Silva has decided to sign a one-year contract extension with the club until the end of the 2022/23 season. Silva joined the Blues this summer after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired at the end of last season. He has been an important part of the Chelsea defense this season and has made 22 appearances for the club. He has two goals and two assists to his name this season.
“To play here with Chelsea is a real pleasure. I never thought I would play for three years here in this great club so I’m very happy to stay for another season,” Chelsea defender Thiago Silva said. “I would also like to say thanks to my family, the club, Marina (Granovskaia), and to Mr (Roman) Abramovich for this opportunity. I will continue to give everything for this club and for the supporters, who have always been by my side since I arrived. It’s amazing to have this relationship with the fans and not only that but the players, staff, and the whole club.”
“Thiago Silva’s experience, leadership, and performances have been and remain very important to this squad, so we are hugely pleased to extend his contract by another year,” Chelsea’s director Marina Granovskia said. “We look forward to his continued influence as we seek honors this season and next, and more of the qualities that have led to him having such a big impact for us on and off the pitch.”
