Thiago Silva may have not played for Chelsea since getting injured against Tottenham in early February, but the Brazil icon has indeed proven that he’s loyal to the Chelsea cause.

Thiago Silva had formed a fine partnership and understanding with Kurt Zouma under Frank Lampard, and Zouma was given a start against the Toffees on Monday night.

After Chelsea’s first goal which came courtesy of a deflected Kai Havertz shot, Silva who was on the bench beckoned on Zouma to come over, and he gave a word of advice to the Frenchman.

Silva was spotted talking to Zouma, while the other Chelsea players were still celebrating the goal. Blues fans have gone on Reddit to analyse what was said.

On Reddit, user SMReddits posted a clip of the moment and said: “Straight after Chelsea scored yesterday, Thiago Silva called Zouma to the sideline gave him instructions and told him to focus. Leader.”

Sunnyglacier6 said: “He is going to be one hell of a coach what a leader. So happy to have this kind of champion mentality on the squad to pass onto the youngsters.”

Meanwhile cowdude179 responded: “He looks like a coach here lmao.”
