Chelsea defender Thiago Silva has sent a message to departing Blues boss Frank Lampard after the 42-year-old was sacked as Chelsea manager on Monday morning.
The 36-year-old veteran defender had a good relationship with Lampard, and has now sent a thank you message to the club legend.
Silva wrote on twitter: “I would like to thank you for everything you and your committee have done for me since the day I arrived.
“As I told you, it seemed like we had been working together for 10 years!! Thank you very much for everything legend . #FrankLampard #legend”
Meanwhile, Lampard is set to be replaced by former PSG boss Thomas Tuchel, who Silva knows first hand from his time with the French champions.
Silva and Tuchel didn’t have the best of relationships in Paris, but they must now come together and put aside past differences.
“It’s difficult but it was predictable that this was going to happen (Tuchel being sacked by PSG). Not now, but being inside, we knew there were situations that had to be changed,” Silva said after Tuchel’s sack was confirmed in December.
