Legendary defender Thiago Silva kissed the Chelsea badge after scoring their first goal in a 3-0 win over rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
“Of course, today I don’t have the same explosion that I had at Fluminense, but there are things I didn’t have at the beginning and today I have a lot, which is the experience,” he said. “You cut a lot of paths, you can read a lot of things before they happen. Back then I ran, but I didn’t think. Today I run less and think more, you know? I’m 37 years old, playing in one of the top leagues in the world, in one of the biggest clubs, at a high level. This, somehow, makes me very proud. Saying ‘Thiago, you love what you do, you deserve everything you have because you are dedicated and do it out of love’.”
