"I had never seen myself in the Premier League before," admitted the former PSG captain at a press conference on Tuesday.

My impression of football was long and tall balls.

I thought at the time that I couldn't see myself playing there.

But over time, I saw that the English championship has developed enormously, there is a lot more technical quality.

Little by little, the Premier League won me over. "

The Brazilian center-back, who has 30 trophies in his career, will add experience to a defense that has faltered throughout Frank Lampard's tenure.

For the 36-year-old, “age is just a number on paper.

I still feel very young, I am physically well.

I love my job and I am 200% invested.

Lampard and Chelsea offer me a great opportunity and I don't want to disappoint them. "

Intensive English courses

Thiago Silva also revealed to do everything to learn English quickly: “It will be difficult, it is always the case with a new language.

I study Monday to Friday to speak English, looking at basic terms and words.

You prioritize important words. ”

The Brazilian, who already speaks Italian, French, Spanish and his native Portuguese, therefore wants to integrate as quickly as possible in his new country and club.
