Silva, at the age of 37, has become a vital part of Chelsea’s defence since he arrived
Though he is nearing the end of his career, Silva is still a dominant force at the heart of the defence and therefore has built a great rapport with Chelsea supporters.
Following Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Lille on Tuesday night, Silva had a lot of positive things to say about his time at the club.
He told TNT Sports Brasil: ‘I feel like I’m living a dream here at Chelsea.
The highlight came last year when Chelsea clinched the Champions League trophy in Porto
‘I wasn’t expecting something like that. The fans are always singing my name. It’s magic, it’s a dream.
‘I’m really proud to play here for Chelsea and their supporters.’
Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic both netted to guide the Blues to victory over the Lille in the first-leg of the last-16 tie.
Chelsea have also won the Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup in his time at the club
