Veteran defender Thiago Silva has already settled in at Chelsea, and the 36-year-old’s family seems to be at home in the capital.

Thiago Silva’s sons Isago and Iago started training with the Chelsea academy last November, and they already have Blue blood flowing in their vains.

Interestingly, in the clip shown above, both Isago and Iago picked Chelsea as the team they support, while the rest of the family picked Brazilian clubs instead.

As for Iago, he declared that Mason Mount is his favourite Chelsea player.

“My favourite Chelsea player, without being my dad, is Mason Mount,” Iago said on his mother’s Instagram account.

Mount has a new fan, as the young Iago has already recognised why the Chelsea midfielder was loved by Frank Lampard, is admired by Gareth Southgate and has impressed Thomas Tuchel.
