Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic has compared Chelsea defender Thiago Silva to Inter Milan legend Javier Zanetti.
Kovacic played alongside Zanetti in the latter stages of his career at Inter and sees similarities between the Inter Milan legend and 36 year old Thiago Silva.
“They are similar,” Kovacic told Chelsea’s ‘Unscripted’ show of Silva and Zanetti.
“Zanetti was a bit older, he was 40 when I played with him, but they are both big, big professionals, so experienced.
“When you see them play, they are so calm on the ball, especially Thiago at the back. Two big, big players.”
