There is an overwhelming bond existing between Thiago Silva and Chelsea fans, it is way too surprising because the veteran defender has been at the club for only one and a half seasons.
The Brazilian was a substitute in last night’s 0-1 win at Spurs. After the full-time whistle, Silva approached the Chelsea fans and applauded them for five minutes as they sang his name:
Reporter Olivia Buzaglo was present at the stadium and she wrote on Twitter: “I don’t know if people watching on TV would’ve seen but after the game, Thiago Silva stood in front of the Chelsea fans for a good five minutes, whilst we sang his name & he danced along & pointed at the badge. What a hero.”
Meanwhile, fan account CFCDubois shared the video and wrote: “I don’t want this man to ever leave Chelsea.”
Silva can be seen appreciating the fans and bowing towards them – what an epic moment this was.
