Thiago Silva aiming to be at another World Cup

Thiago Silva is aiming to be at another world cup in the next two years in 2022 despite his career coming towards an end.

The Brazilian Centre-half enjoyed a trophy-laden spell with Paris Saint-Germain before making a switch to London this summer to join Chelsea on a free transfer.

Silva speaking in an interview on the Chelsea website, he expressed his satisfaction of joining Chelsea and a new project and hopes to have a special time at Stamford Bridge.

"What motivates me, day by day, is the hunger to win. To win everything within my reach," 

"Coming to the Premier League, my main goal is to win the league title and I’m certain that we’ll be fighting for that every step of the way. The team is really strong, we’ve got a great coach and I’ve come here to contribute in whatever way I can to ensure that we get as close as possible to achieving those aims.

"That’s what motivates me: stepping out onto the pitch, and then winning, winning, and winning some more. I don’t think about anything else.

"As I’ve said before, the prospect of playing at the next World Cup is another thing that really drives me. I’ll be more or less 38 years old by the time of the next World Cup and I’m hugely motivated to be in good shape for it.

"The work that I’m putting in to make this a reality already started a while back and now Chelsea have given me a great opportunity to continue playing at the highest level.

"What Chelsea represents to me is a source of great happiness and motivation to be a part of a new project, a new family and I hope that this will be a very special year together."
