Chelsea boss Frank Lampard heaps praise on summer signing after West Ham win

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has praised summer signing Thiago Silva after his display during the Blues 3-0 win over West Ham on Monday night. Silva started from the first minutes and played the full 90' having scored the opener for the Blues at the 10th minute. "I remember playing in the Premier League at 36 and I couldn’t play like he’s playing," Lampard told Sky Sports. "I could feel it at that stage of my career so I was probably a bit tentative [about him]. I knew he was a top player, he’d been a great player for a long time. "But there are pressures in the Premier League when you’ve never played here and played in France for quite a long time. No disrespect. "He probably has exceeded it [expectations] slightly but really I shouldn’t have been surprised. "Now that I’m working with him I can see the quality, the preparation, the reading of the game. "He's really studious about the game, he’s been a great addition to us on and off the pitch." source - Express / Join us on Telegram
