Chelsea defender Thiago Silva lavished praise on manager Thomas Tuchel before their game against Manchester United in the Premier League.
Despite his age, Silva has been one of the most consistent and high performing players in the Premier League this season, as the Blues are top of the league table.
The veteran centre-back has worked under some of the best managers in the game during a glittering career for club or country, and he has reserved special praise for Tuchel.
Silva told the club’s website: “He’s a manager who works really hard, particularly on the tactical side, thinking about attacking shapes. He’s someone who always thinks about winning, so in order to do that he needs to think about different attacking plans to put in place out on the pitch.
“It’s interesting to see because the way he prepares us we put into practice everything that we train with him, and at the moment it’s all coming off. It’s unbelievable all that he’s putting in place to make sure that we’re in the best condition to win.”
