Rennes boss has hailed Chelsea’s defender Thiago Silva, with the Blues signing the veteran defender from PSG.
The 36-year-old central defender joined Chelsea as a free agent from PSG, and Rennes boss Julien Stephan believes that the French league has lost a top player to the Premier League.
Stephan said of Thiago Silva: “He is a complete and exceptional player. It’s unfortunate not to have him in the French league anymore, but I think the Premier League has recovered a very, very high level defender.
“I would have liked to have had him with us but it is not calibrated for clubs like ours but for clubs of a higher level.
“This year he is also in a great team with great ambitions and which is making a fantastic start to the championship after a very large recruitment.”
