Chelsea defender Thiago Silva has admitted he is still a fan of Italian side AC Milan.

The 36 year old Brazilian centre-back played for AC Milan between 2009 and 2012.

Thiago Silva hopes to see AC Milan reach the Champions League for next season following their 3-0 victory over Juventus on Sunday.

“I’ve been thinking about this moment since I left Milan, I’ve been thinking about Milan’s Champions League qualification every year,” the 36-year-old told Sky Italia.

“This season we are close. I saw the game against Juventus. I was a bit sad for Juventus’ Brazilian players: Danilo, Alex Sandro, Arthur. Even for Gigi [Buffon], we played together in Paris.

“But Milan played a great game and deserved to win, I think they deserve to qualify for the Champions League. They’ve had a great season and they deserve it for what they’ve done in six-seven months.

“I am still a Milan fan, I hope I can see them again and return to San Siro, which is a special stadium for me.”
