Chelsea defender Thiago Silva is ten years older than his centre-back pairing Kurt Zouma, and so also is the vast experience separating the two defenders.

Thiago Silva has seen it all and won a massive number of trophies and played at the top level for many years.

Zouma, who has had to go away on loan twice, has now revealed what he has picked up from playing alongside the Brazil veteran.

Asked what he has learned off Thiago Silva in a Q&A with the official Chelsea website, Zouma responded: “He’s a very calm guy. He has got experience.

“He knows the game very well. He has won a lot of trophies. His positioning is always good defensively when we don’t have the ball, and with the ball he can find passes. He is also a leader in the team, so there are many things to learn off him.”
