Chelsea legend John Terry had admitted that he would loved to have played alongside current Blues central defender Thiago Silva in his playing days amid strong form for the Brazilian.

Silva, 37, played some part in all three games last week to the surprise of my Chelsea supporters, who weren’t expecting to see the centre-half feature in all of the Newcastle, Malmo and Burnley games.

The Brazil international’s form and importance in this current west London outfit is sometimes understated, with the veteran playing a key part in the Champions League win last season, despite going off in the final early on due to an unfortunate injury.

Silva’s vein of consistency in the back three week in, week out, has also helped Thomas Tuchel and his side maintain a three-point Premier League points buffer going into the November international period.

Unsurprisingly, Blues legend Terry has been full of praise for the defensive lynchpin in his latest Q & A session on his Twitter account that he set up on Friday afternoon.

We’ve already heard the club legend’s thoughts on a number of topics, including his thoughts on Manchester City, Manchester United and the possibility of seeing Frank Lampard take the vacant Norwich role.

But now he’s had his say on Silva when asked a question on social media, to which he replied: “Absolutely love him.

“Would have loved to have played alongside him.

“Does everything so simple but so well.

“Proper Defender [followed by a blue heart emoji].”

The 40-year-old’s view on the player in question coincides well with Tuchel’s praise of his reliable defender who has been with him since their Paris Saint-Germain days.

“When he’s on the pitch he trains full on, there is no training session where he is trying to hold back. He is one of the most intensive guys in training physically,” Tuchel said back in September.

Silva will now jet off to South America to captain his home nation in their important World Cup qualifiers against Colombia and Argentina.

Barring any unfortunate injuries picked up during this period, the 37-year-old will likely feature in the heart of the European Champions’ backline for their next league encounters against Leicester and Manchester United before the end of the month.
