Thomas Tuchel has issued an update on Thiago Silva following Brazil call-up. Silva will join Brazil for the October triple header against Venezuela, Colombia and Uruguay.

And after the international break, the Blues will be preparing to face Brentford on October 16. Ahead of the game, Tuchel confirmed that Thiago will not be able to play against Brentford as Brazil’s game against Uruguay is scheduled to kick-off at 01:30am BST on Friday morning.

Tuchel said of Thiago Silva: “He will go and then he will play for Brazil and then he will come back on the matchday versus Brentford.

“This is the life of international breaks, this is the situation of international breaks in 2021.

“Like it or not, what can I do? Is it a good solution for us as a club? No. But we cannot hold him back.

“It is impossible if they call him, he needs to go. Otherwise he gets suspended from FIFA.

“There is no choice and it is something we have to live with.”
