EPL: Chelsea Star, Thiago Silva Reveals Secret To His Longevity In Football

Chelsea defender, Thiago Silva, has revealed the secret to his longevity in the game of football.

Silva has already played 29 times for club and country this season.

The 37-year-old signed a new contract with Chelsea on Monday that would see him remain at Stamford Bridge until the summer of 2023.

The Brazilian centre-back joined Thomas Tuchel’s side from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2020.

Asked what the secret to his longevity is, Silva told Chelsea’s official website ahead of their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg tie with Tottenham on Wednesday night: “The first thing is preparation, the organization, not just from the players but from all of the staff.

“I have a really good relationship with the staff. It’s great if I’m feeling tired, I can speak to the coaching staff, and I can say that it might be risky to play certain matches, and we think about it and we decide whether it’s better to play or to rest.”
