Lampard sends Terry message to new Chelsea signing Thiago Silva

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed he hopes new Chelsea signing Thiago Silva could be the one to lead Chelsea’s defence like Chelsea legend John Terry.

Since Terry left Chelsea in the summer of 2017, the Blues have struggled to replace defender.

“I think so,” Frank Lampard said on BBC Radio 5 Live when asked if his Chelsea lacked a defensive leader last season.

“Leaders like John Terry are not very common. It probably was something we missed – a vocal presence at the back.

“When you have a quiet team who don’t want to talk it is very hard sometimes.

“We work on it but I hope Thiago will bring it naturally. He has generally been captain of the team he has played in and had a lot of success.

“When I watched him in the run-up to the Champions League final he looked fit, he looked hungry and the conversations that I have had with him have been the same.”
