Who would Thiago Silva be the perfect partner for at Chelsea?

Chelsea has officially completed a free transfer with Thiago Silva. This veteran midfielder promises to be the perfect partner for many other players.

Thiago Silva will turn 36 next month but is expected to be an important factor in helping Chelsea have a more solid defense for the upcoming campaign.

With a dense schedule, Silva did not start every match, but will appear in important matches. So who can be your main partner?

1. Kurt Zouma

Towards the end of the season, Kurt Zouma emerged as Chelsea’s strongest midfielder with some good performances. However, the 25-year-old has to compete fiercely for a regular starting position.

If you maintain a stable performance, Zouma will be a great partner for Thiago Silva, combining youth and experience.

2. Antonio Rudiger

The Germany international admits he hasn’t had the best season yet and wants to improve in the upcoming campaign.

When at his best, Rudiger remained the top center-back, but now he has to rebuild a new partnership.

3. Andreas Christensen

Christensen went through an erratic campaign with Chelsea. He collaborated with Rudiger but was always uncertain in the backline.

Christensen has a contract until 2022 and it is not clear whether the defender will continue to stay at Stamford Bridge.

4. Fikayo Tomori

After the start of the season, Tomori’s playing time gradually decreased. The 22-year-old has only played once since the beginning of 2020 in the Premier League with another performance in the FA Cup.

Everton is monitoring the situation and may make an offer to buy Tomori when Silva joins the Blues.

5. Ethan Ampadu

The 19-year-old has been an interesting prospect on loan at RB Leipzig last season. However, things did not go well because he only had 3 substitution appearances in the Bundesliga, plus 3 matches in the Champions League.

Ampadu wants to win a position at Chelsea but does not rule out the possibility that he will be on loan again.

Is Carlo Ancelotti a suitable choice for Arsenal now?

You don’t know what will happen to Arsenal, it’s a certainty, when its players don’t even know what they’re fighting for, because of the salary they get, for not wanting to be criticized like Fools or simply go out and finish your game any way you want.

Similar things have been happening at the Emirates Stadium, Mesut Oezil has always been the most boring, Dani Ceballos disappears in a hurry, Pepe does not show that he deserves to be the most expensive player in the club history, Aubameyang doesn’t feel like sticking around any longer, and young talents play football without clear direction.

One can only bow to the victories that Carlo Ancelotti has achieved across the former continent, admiring the wisdom and football ideas that have changed the world’s perception of the sport.

Ancelotti is calm, calm, a friend to the players, knows how to handle complicated relationships with famously difficult presidents like Abramovic or Florentino Perez. He has every reason to succeed at Arsenal, but there are many other reasons to fail at the Emirates Stadium.

The current people at Arsenal need something else, a ferocity from the coach, who can take a walking stick on the training ground and force them to follow the rules. Carlo Ancelotti is too soft, he is not the type of coach to issue steel orders, does not require the players to practice hard, do not like to shout at them and force everyone to obey absolutely.

If so, then it will be a repeat of the Arsene Wenger era, a more benevolent father than a coach shouting out fire. Arsenal don’t need that.

And with all due respect, in the treasure trove of his experience, Carlo Ancelotti has never shown him capable of creating something from the rubble. He is not a strategist for long distance races, even having incredible squads at AC Milan, Bayern Munich, Paris St Germain and Real Madrid.

He is very strong when he owns a stable team, owns the throne of big star, and number one in the European arena. But it is not good to take over the turbulent and chaotic clubs.

What happened at Napoli was the latest warning, he lost his influence on the players and could not create a revolution for the club, failed to create a team with enough competitive stability through. Every year. And for the average Arsenal player now, Ljungberg is the best for this situation, just like Lampard with Chelsea.
