Thiago Silva Gives Update on His Future at Chelsea
Chelsea’s defender, Thiago Silva has given a hint about the possible time that he will be calling it quit on football.
The 37-year-old was speaking at a press conference with the Brazilian national team during this international break. Silva was asked if he can keep playing till he reaches 40 and he said that was his desire.
It depends on this season and we’ll see what will happen in the World Cup… and it also depends on a contract extension. But I can confirm that my aim is to play until I am 40, yes.
