#PLStories- Chelsea defender Thiago Silva agrees with Pep Guardiola on major Thomas Tuchel strength #MCFC #CHELSEAFC

Thiago Silva has praised Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel for his ‘knowledge’, with the Brazilian planning the next stages of his career. The Brazilian centre-back has certainly impressed since arriving from Paris Saint-Germain last summer on a free transfer. He played a key role in the side that won the Champions League, and is also currently occupying top spot in the Premier League with the Blues. Regardless, it does not appear that Silva will be able to go on forever, having recently turned 37. He has admitted that thoughts of retirement will be considered at some point in the future but in the meantime he is enjoying learning under the tutelage of current club boss Tuchel. Talking in an interview with Globo Esporte

Thiago Silva said: “It’s [retirement] still far away. But at the same time it’s close. The coolest thing is that I’m close to very capable people. This gives you knowledge of the situation, of what you want. Not only here, but also at Chelsea with Tuchel. I hope that for my coaching career this can add a lot to me. I learned and continue to learn important things for football and for life. This is important because sometimes you don’t have to be a great coach, but a great manager. I have good examples, like Tite [Brazil head coach] and Tuchel. It makes me more confident about what I want for my career and my life. I’m studying.”

It is certainly not the first time that Tuchel has been praised for his ability to impart his experience and knowledge of the game, and what is to come afterwards. Even Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed how much he has learned from observing the German, both in his time in the Premier League and earlier in his career. Talking to UEFA ahead of the Champions League final meeting between the two managers,

Pep Guardiola said: “With football, one of the nicest things is talking about it. There’s watching and training and, after that, there’s talk. I would say I learn a lot from Thomas; I learned a lot watching his teams, with our conversations.”
