Thiago Silva joins Chelsea training ahead of Liverpool clash

September 17th, 2020 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Thiago Siva joined up with his Chelsea teamates for the first time at least to be in contention to make the matchday squad for Chelsea vs Liverpool at Stamford Bridge this weekend.

The 35-year-old Brazilian defender has signed a one-year deal at Stamford Bridge after calling time on his time at Paris Saint-Germain.

Silva made 315 appearances for the French champions over an eight-year stay in the capital.

He appeared in training with his new colleagues, taking part in small-sided matches and other drills.

Alongside him was Ben Chilwell, who has missed the start of Chelsea’s season with injury.

The full back joined from Leicester City in the summer in a £50million deal but has struggled with a heel injury he picked up towards the back-end of last season.

He is now back in training, and could be in line for his debut in the coming weeks.

Chelsea began their season with a 3-1 victory over Brighton on Monday evening.
