Thiago Silva, Chelsea Defender, Admits Long-Ball Football In Premier League Kept Him Away Until Now


Silva, who joined Chelsea as a free agent after leaving French side Paris Saint-Germain, feels English football has now “developed tremendously” with a lot more “technical quality” in the Premier League.I’d never really seen myself in the Premier League previously because I saw it as a difficult style of football, personally,” said the 36-year-old centre-back, in his first news conference as a Chelsea player.

I didn’t have any desire to play in the Premier League because my impression was that the football being played was of long balls. At the time I couldn’t see myself playing in that league.

I’d seen it as being characterised by long balls and that didn’t really appeal to me. I know how to play that way but my preference was to play football on the ground, I knew my quality.”But little by little the Premier League has really won me over and anyone that knows me can confirm that.”
