Former Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard, has revealed the message he received from one of the club’s defenders, Thiago Silva after the Blues won the Champions League last season.
Lampard brought the veteran Brazil international to the club on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain last year.
However, the former Chelsea midfielder spent just five months at Stamford Bridge with Silva as he was sacked by the Blues board in January following series of bad results and replaced by Thomas Tuchel.
Thomas Tuchel came in and helped the Blues win the Champions League, beating Manchester City 1-0 in the final in Porto.
But the veteran Brazilian defender took the opportunity to privately thank Lampard for bringing him to the club.
“As the dust settles I can take some happiness from players like Mason, Reece, Tammy, some of the older players, I hate to reflect, Thiago Silva sent me a beautiful message after the game saying, ‘thanks for bringing me to the club and this happened’,” he told Sky Sports.
“People who work with the club, I’m friends with masseurs and physios and fans, when it settles you can absolutely look at that with a much more positive eye than the football side can sometimes take you.”
