Chelsea centre-back Thiago Silva hss continued to impress for the Blues this season despite being 37.
The Brazilian centre-back remains a key player for the Blues and played a key role in ensuring Chelsea kept a clean sheet in the 4-0 Champions League victory over Juventus on Tuesday night.
With the Blues leading 1-0, Juventus striker and former Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata thought he had equalised after he lifted the ball over Edouard Mendy but Thiago Silva produced a moment of astonishing athleticism as he hooked the ball to safety with a spectacular overhead clearance.
Following the impressive clearance that prevented a Morata goal in his Stamford Bridge return, a Chelsea fan has asked the club to offer Thiago Silva a three year contract.
The contract of the ageless Thiago Silva expires at the end of the season and the Blues will surely hand the 37 year old another one year contract but Chelsea fan Alfred Arthur believes the Brazilian deserves a three year contract for his brilliant clearance against Juventus.
Responding to a post on Facebook about Thiago Silva’s clearance against Juventus, Chelsea fan Alfred Arthur posted: “Give Thiago Silva a three year contract.”
Another fan Gershon Fernandez posted: “He prevented Morata from uttering a word at Stamford bridge on his return.”
