Kurt Zouma is full praise for Silva

Chelsea Centre Back Kurt Zouma was full of praise for his new centre back partner Thiago Silva. The 36-year-old signed a one-year deal with Chelsea after he became a free agent as his contract came to an end with Paris Saint-Germain.

Lampard’s men conceded 54 goals in the last season of English Premier League which was the most goals conceded by a club in the top 10. Hence Chelsea made sure that they reinforce their defense in this transfer window.  They made some impressive defensive signings which included Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell.

We are all excited to play with him and to learn from him, says Zouma

Speaking to the official website of Chelsea, Zouma said, “You can see straight away, as soon as he [Thiago Silva] walked through the door at Cobham, he gives advice to the players around him, he’s really good with people and you can definitely see he has very good leadership skills. I’m very excited to work with Thiago but I don’t think I’m the only one, a lot of the guys here at Chelsea feel exactly the same. We are all excited to play with him and to learn from him.”

Kurt Zouma also went on to praise how good a player Thiago Silva is. Speaking about his defensive capabilities Kurt Zouma said, “He’s got great experience at the highest level, he’s won a lot of titles and last season he played in the Champions League final. For me, he’s got everything. He’s calm on the ball, he can defend very well, his positioning is great. I’m very happy he’s here and excited to learn from him.”
