Thiago Silva explains how Chelsea intend to stop Cristiano Ronaldo
the Chelsea News
Chelsea have done their clever trick of releasing exclusive pre-game quotes on their own app, and this time they’ve had an interesting few words with Thiago Silva.
They were determined to get him to talk about facing Cristiano Ronaldo, given its the first time the Blues have faced off with the Portuguese in some time, but he was insistent that Thomas Tuchel’s team aren’t getting tied up in knots worrying about one player.
You can see the quotes from the interview in the Tweets here from Absolute Chelsea:
While Silva insists that “Ronaldo doesn’t play on his own,” it’s interesting that he talks about the supply line of Bruno Fernandes to his countryman. That’s clearly something Silva and his teammates have been thinking about, and cutting him off will be key to making sure the veteran forward isn’t a threat today.
We have full faith in the players and the coaching staff to prepare perfectly, even for this tough challenge.
