Chelsea Brazilian defender Thiago Silva has expressed his delightment over his contract renewal.
The veteran has extended his contract to the end of next season. He told the club's website: "I'm very good here.
That's also thanks to the career I had at Milan, and PSG. It means I arrived at Chelsea as an experienced player. "Also, the supporters are always by my side.
That's very important because they're there even if we're losing, and if they support it's also because I've been playing well.
Now the club have given me this opportunity to continue to do this, and I'm going to give everything to keep playing at this level.
"For me it's great, I never imagined that I would live this experience in my career. I felt it a bit at Milan, also in Paris, but here it's been like this since the first day.
When you see the images of the fans chanting my name at the end of the Champions League final, even if I hadn't played all of the games because I'd been injured, for me it's also feels like a recognition for everything that I've done."
