Chelsea defender Thiago Silva taking coaching badges
Chelsea defender Thiago Silva has started taking his coaching badges.
The Brazilian centre-back, 36, penned a one-year deal at Stamford Bridge after leaving Paris Saint-Germain for free in the summer.
Globo Esporte reports the veteran defender began a Brazilian football confederation (CBF) coaching course as part of his B Licence. Silva was joined by former Blue Filipe Luis and ex-Spurs star Paulinho in beginning the transition during the pandemic.
Reportedly Luis, 35, is the keenest future boss out of the trio of Brazilian internationals. Due to social distancing guidelines, all of Silva's coaching classes were held online.
This helped all three players – Paulinho at Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande and Luis in Brazil with Flamengo – balance their busy schedules with the program.
In order to graduate from the course, face-to-face sessions and assessments will have to take place when the pandemic allows.
