I’ll Love To Be A Coach After My Football Career – Thiago Silva

Chelsea defender, Thiago Silva has disclosed that he would love to become a coach after his retirement from football.

Silva arrived at Stamford Bridge in the summer on a free transfer after spending eight years at Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

The Brazilian international is currently 36 and believes he has a few more years at the highest level, before moving into coaching.

“I have it settled in my mind: I’m working my body to play until I’m 40,” Silva said in an interview published in the March edition FourFourTwo.

“I’m not sure if it’s because I played with (Paolo) Maldini and he carried on until he turned 41, but I watched the last six months of his great career and could see it’s possible to get there.

“It was impressive, the way he prepared himself to games, and how he dedicated himself to the team. My plan is to be at the next World Cup in 2022.”

On coaching, Silva added: “I’d be lying if I said that wasn’t the plan. I do think about it, but it’s still a bit away yet.

“I’m fortunate to have had many great coaches, like Carlo Ancelotti and Tite [Brazil head coach], so I’ve earned lots under them.

“I also spoke to Lampard and Thomas Tuchel about my desire to become a manager.”

    Only last week it was Yaya Toure securing the assistant coach position in an Ukrainian club after spending time with QPR and Blackburn Rovers as part of training towards his coaching qualifications…..this week its former Tunisia international Rahdi Jaidi nicking a job too at Cercle Brugge after spending time with the Southampton u23s (first as assistant coach and then as head) and in the USL as head coach


    Hehehehehe….our own people in these parts wait for 6 whole years and more after retirement, with zero coaching training or practice and want to use PR stunts and 100caps to stampede their ways to coaching jobs. Lolz. ‘Ex-international’ na their own chieftaincy title…Lolz

    Its a good thing African players are beginning to catch the drift as regards breaking the managerial ice in Europe. The more they can populate the coaching pool out there the higher the chances of having black managers……impossibility is nothing. There used to be a time when is was rare to see blacks playing professional football in Europe…these days blacks even captain professional clubs….and its not even a century yet. It only takes a few to distinguish themselves on the job to open doors of opportunities for the rest.
