Thiago: World Cup key factor in Chelsea choice

Chelsea defender, Thiago Silva, has said the decision to move to the London giants was motivated by the 2022 World Cup.

Silva, 36, intends to be fully fit and in shape for the Qatar tournament.

He told the club’s website: “Yes. First, I have this ambition to continue producing good performances here at Chelsea. I chose this club to keep playing at a very, very high level. Of course, my ambition is to keep working hard to play at the next World Cup. It will be a World Cup very special, different from all the others.

“I hope to have the possibility of going there, but for now I have to keep working at this level and continue winning qualifying matches for the Selecao to even qualify for the World Cup! People talk about the World Cup, the World Cup that, but first, you have to qualify.
