Overview Of: Thiago Silva gives Chelsea defence what it has lacked but one problem remains for Frank Lampard
Thiago Silva directs his new team-mates on his Chelsea debut against Barnsley.
Show Thiago Silva a map of England – heck, Yorkshire – stripped of labels and ask him to stick a pin in Barnsley.
The only way he is getting it right is through complete fortune.
Yet here the 36-year-old was, a serial winner whose last game exactly one month ago was the Champions League final against Bayern Munich,
preparing for a Carabao Cup third-round tie against one of the Championship’s smallest clubs.
It is unlikely that this is what the 89-time Brazil international envisaged for his debut when he agreed to swap Paris for West London as a free agent but in many ways it was a typical introduction to frantically-paced English football.
