Former Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain coach Paul Clement has revealed he’s glad Chelsea boss Frank Lampard took his advice on signing Thiago Silva.
“I had a brief text exchange with Frank about him and I shared my opinion and I am glad he took him [Thiago Silva] and that it has worked out up until this point,” Clement told Goal.
“PSG got the best out of him for sure over many seasons. He has an incredible trophy tally, I think it was over 30 trophies with leagues, cups and close to the Champions League but he didn’t quite get there.
“He is a really good player with the ball at his feet. He was quick and athletic without being the biggest but he is tough and aggressive. He is a leader and a winner.
“Since he has gone to Chelsea, at 36 years old, to go in at that level of the competition, he has done extremely well.”
