Chelsea defender Thiago Silva was like a coach in Wednesday night’s Champions League clash, and lived every moment with the Chelsea players despite not being on the pitch for the game against Atletico Madrid.
The Brazilian stood in the stands, shouting at his teammates and was an animated figure all through the game.
After Emerson’s late goal, Thiago Silva went wild in celebration, as he rushed up the Stamford Bridge steps to hug team-mates Mason Mount and Jorginho – who missed the match through suspension, and were also watching from the stands.
Chelsea fans were indeed pleased with the reaction of Thiago Silva, and labelled the Brazilian a club legend, despite that he only just joined the club during the summer.
