How Guardiola Convinced Me To Play In EPL  –Silva

Chelsea defender, Thiago Silva, has revealed that Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola played a vital role in his decision to play in the Premier League.

Recall that on 28 August 2020, Silva joined Premier League club Chelsea on a one-year deal and has become an integral part of the team.

However, in a chat with ESPN, the Brazilian international stated that he never imagine playing in the Premier League.

“No man, no. I never imagined I would play in the Premier League one day. It was one, with all due respect, football that I didn’t like.

“Because I thought it was a lot of aerial balls, get up here, fight there. I never really liked it even though I’m good in the air and adapt well. I thought I wouldn’t play here.”

“I think one of those responsible for this change, I think, is Pep Guardiola, right? He plays more. The others don’t try to copy but they look to play more because this is beautiful football to watch.

“And from that moment on I became interested. I watched more at home. Chelsea’s proposal came and I didn’t think twice.”
