Former Paris Saint Germain captain, Thiago Silva, has indicated how easy it was to join Chelsea as a free agent and his determination to add to his impressive trophy collection while at the club.

Silva joined Frank Lampard’s side at the beginning of the season after Paris Saint Germain were defeated in the Champions League final by Bayern Munich in his last game for the club.

The Brazilian had to endure some harsh criticisms in his first game for the club after a mistake he made led to a West Brom goal.  He however, put it behind him as he helped his side qualify for the round of 16 of the Champions League while going 17 games unbeaten in all competitions.

Even before joining Chelsea, Thiago Silva had received offers from other clubs but has now revealed why it was easy to join Chelsea, citing the club’s history and the wealth of experience that the head and coach and his coaching staff bring on board as the major reasons.

The choice to join Chelsea wasn’t hard, Thiago Silva said.

You’re talking about a club with Chelsea’s history, their great and respected shirt, our coaching staff, first and foremost the gaffer who was really successful here playing for Chelsea, and the squad which really caught my eye in terms of the quality of the team.

Thiago Silva was a serial winner while at AC Milan and particularly at Paris Saint Germain and he is determined to add to those laurels he achieved in Italy and France.

At Milan I won Serie A and the Italian Super Cup, and at PSG I won basically everything possible, except the Champions League, we reached the final.

‘With Chelsea my main objective is the Premier League, of course. It’d be a dream come true to win it and there’s no doubt we’re looking at winning the Champions League and the cups as well, so it’s a matter of working.

I think Chelsea aren’t just 11 players, they’ve got a group of 22 players who have what it takes to go far in all competitions.

Chelsea have now lost two consecutive games against Everton and Wolves and will be looking to bounce back when they face West Ham on Monday.
