Chelsea defender Thiago Silva has signed a new contract to keep him at the club for another year. This was announced on Monday the 4th of January 2022 by the club management in the wake of the winter transfer window.
The centre-back has been world-class despite his age over the last season and a half and fans were understandably thrilled with the news. Here’s a look at the best reactions on social media:
