The core that should never be left out of Chelsea was not the freshmen who recorded astronomical transfer fees.

On the 17th (Korean time), Britain’s ‘The Athletic’ selected a player who must be in the starting lineup among the players from each team in the English Premier League (EPL). Bukayo Saka was selected from Arsenal, where Gabriel Jesus and Thomas Fati were out with injuries. Harry Kane was selected by Tottenham Hotspur. The media said, “Without Kane, Tottenham will collapse.”

Rodri from Manchester City and Marcus Rashford from Manchester United. Liverpool was Virgil Van Dyke. Mohamed Salah was also mentioned. In Wolverhampton, where Hwang Hee-chan plays, Hubeng Neves was mentioned. ‘The Athletic’ emphasized the importance of Neves by praising him as “Wolverhampton’s greatest ever player.” An unexpected player was selected at Chelsea. It was Thiago Silva.

Chelsea are full of young and talented players. Following the summer, the squad was reinforced through extensive investment in the winter. For 611.49 million euros (approximately 846.6 billion won), Enzo Fernandez, Mihailo Mudrik, Benoit Badiacil, Noni Madueke, Andriy Santos, David Dartro Popana and Joao Felix were recruited. In most cases, the transfer fee was very high. Aside from freshmen, there were many players with high names in Chelsea.

Still, Silva was chosen. Silva was born in 1984 and is now a veteran who is hoping to turn 40. Silva, who was called the world’s best center back through AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), came to Chelsea in 2020. In his early days, he struggled with the fast tempo and intense pressure typical of the EPL. He seemed to be failing at Chelsea, but he gradually adapted and became a defensive leader in his unique and stable appearance. 온라인카지노

He is still the best defensive power in the EPL. Chelsea acknowledged Silva’s performance by renewing his contract one after another. Even as Chelsea currently falter, Silva is receiving praise every game. He is also called Chelsea’s practical ace. It was a natural evaluation as his defense ability was completely different depending on whether he played or not, and it also affected his overall performance. ‘The Athletic’ said, “Silva is Chelsea’s best defender, and furthermore, the best player in the EPL. He also has great leadership to bring the team together.”

It’s nice for Chelsea to hear Silva praised, but it’s also bittersweet. The fact that Silva was selected as the representative player means that while his performance is so good, it also means that younger and higher-priced players are not performing properly.
