Thiago Silva compares Graham Potter to former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel

Chelsea defender Thiago Silva has refused to be drawn on comparing Chelsea boss Graham Potter to former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel and other managers he has worked with.

Silva has worked under the likes of Luiz Felipe Scolari, Carlo Ancelotti and Tuchel.

“Not enough time has passed to comment on something so important. I don’t like to make comparisons of people, of styles, of work,” Silva told Parimatch.

“Everyone has their own way of doing things. However, in the short time I’ve had with Potter, I can see he is a great person, a great human being.”

“On the pitch, he’s a coach that shows you what you have to do and what you’ve been doing wrong,” Silva added.

“Off the pitch, he’s an amazing human being which I think, when managing a football team, can actually be more important than being a coach.

“So he has these two aspects to him that I think are very important for someone in his position.”
