Why Chelsea Needs To Hand This Experienced Player At Least One Year Contract To Make Sure He Stays.

Having young bloods in a team is crucial for a sustained success, but there's an assurance that comes when one or two experienced or aged players are on the roster.

Their on-field contributions and dressing room influence can be key to a team winning trophies at least for the short term.

Against Manchester City in the FA Cup semifinal, Thiago Silva was simply incredible and barely put a foot wrong as Chelsea sealed passage to the final.

Although he couldn't complete the match due to injury, the Brazilian centre half's game by numbers was still astonishing.

Silva won 100 percent of the aerial battles he was involved in, and also had a perfect tackle-success rate.

His passing accuracy from the back was excellent (100%), completing 44 passes out of a possible 44 whilst having 6 clearances.

Silva went on to have 55 touches on the ball and 2 interceptions before capping it off with a clean sheet.

Although he's 36, Chelsea no doubt needs a big game player like Thiago to be in the team for games like this.

It's not certain if he'll be back on time for the Champions League clash with Real Madrid, but ahead of the 2021/22 season, the Blues must do all it takes to tie down one of their most experienced player, even if it's just for one more year.

What's your opinion on this? Should Chelsea hand Thiago Silva a new contract or allow him to leave next summer?
