Newcastle United’s star Chelsea defender, Thiago Silva, has been described as a “monster” by Bruno Guimaraes.
Brazil’s teammate is Guimaraes, who joined Newcastle from Lyon in the 2021 winter transfer window for £40 million.
They were members of Brazil’s squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, where they were knocked out in the quarterfinals by Croatia.
Silva, 30, is still an important player for both club and country, having made his 100th appearance for West Ham in their recent win over Bournemouth.
“Thiago Silva is a monster,” Guimaraes said on the Premier League’s YouTube channel.
He’s always performed at a high level. It’s difficult to be his age and play the way he did when he was 18… However, he does it. He’s a fantastic player.”
