Thiago Silva has revealed that Chelsea manager Frank Lampard sent him a picture of them shaking hands as players before he joined the Blues.

Silva was one of the several summer signings that Lampard’s side made as the Brazilian joined Chelsea on a free transfer.

“When I was about to sign with Chelsea, when I said ok, he sent me a message with a photo of us shaking hands as captains at the Maracana, in the friendly between Brazil and England,” said Thiago Silva.

“It was a big surprise for me, because I didn’t remember that game.

“I certainly didn’t hesitate to be coached by him. I’m happy that he enjoyed my work so much, I hope to do it in the best possible way to help Chelsea.

“It is a source of pride to be coached by a player I played against and was one of the greatest midfielders in the world.

“For me, it is very joyful to share dressing rooms, exchange ideas, and look to help in every way.”
