Despite Chelsea’s defeat to Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final, Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand praised Chelsea defender Thiago Silva for his performance.
In spite of his age and extensive career at the top level, the veteran Brazilian has been a great acquisition for Chelsea and appears to be capable of playing on for some time yet.
Ferdinand, who hosts the Vibe with Five show on YouTube, is in awe of what Silva is accomplishing at the moment, calling him as “crazy” on the broadcast.
What Thiago Silva is doing now that he is 37 years old is ludicrous. The only thing that cost Chelsea the game on Sunday was a penalty mistake by Kepa Arrizabalaga in the shootout. “Cool and poised, calm under pressure,” Ferdinand remarked of Silva.
There were chances for Thomas Tuchel’s side to win the game, and Silva played a role in keeping Liverpool’s assault quieter than it often is.
