Chelsea defender Thiago Silva insists: I have good relationship with Tuchel

Thiago Silva admits it's been a rollercoaster week at Chelsea.

hiago Silva has admitted he has been left with 'mixed feelings' after being reunited with former PSG boss Thomas Tuchel.

He said: "It's been a tough week with the departure of one manager and the arrival of a new one.

"I have a really good relationship and get on well with them both.

"The six months I spent working with Frank were fantastic. And I had two unbelievable years with Tuchel in Paris too, including getting to the final of the Champions League.

"It's been a really unique week for me, different to anything I've experienced before, because when managers have changed before, the incoming coach has never been someone I've already worked with, who I already have such a good relationship with.

"It's always been new managers who I've not worked with before. So I'm left with mixed feelings. Sadness for one, happiness for the other."
