Chelsea defender Thiago Silva on PSG elimination: Not revenge for Tuchel and I

Chelsea defender Thiago Silva is delighted to have reached the Champions League final.

Victory over Real Madrid sees Thiago Silva reach a second consecutive final after last year's effort with PSG.

He told RMC last night: "It's special for us (Thomas Tuchel and him). Unfortunately yesterday (Tuesday) Paris didn't manage to do the job, I was sad for them. But we are happy here.

"It's different because we play a Champions League game every weekend and at the end you are better prepared.

"But it is not a revenge, the club made its choice to let me go and to release Tuchel too. It's hard to explain but it's their choice, it was sad for me but the most important thing now is to be happy here with Chelsea. Winning the Champions League is always our dream."
