Chelsea defender Thiago Silva will ‘definitely’ be a manager in the future, according to Jody Morris.

“Even before he played a game, I remember when we came back from a game and Thiago was on the phone to discuss the game with the manager.

‘Future manager? Surely. He is a leader of men.’

When he joined Chelsea a month before he turned 36, many expected that Silva’s move to the Premier League would be late and that he would be past his prime.

However, he has shown no signs of slowing down and has been instrumental in their success over the past year.

After a storied career, he finally got his hands on the Champions League trophy when Chelsea defeated Manchester City 1-0 in May.

Morris has drawn a comparison between Silva and legendary Chelsea captain John Terry.

He said, ‘He reminds me of JT [John Terry]. I would think I don’t want to bring that ball down and play, kind of risky, just clearing, but JT would get the ball down, muffled header, right foot, left foot, play through the lines. Thiago is exactly the same.’
