Speaking to reporters at Clairefontaine, French international and Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud delighted in the arrival of Thiago Silva at the London club.
“He is clearly a player who can bring us his experience, his journey, his leadership. I think that the coach brought him to Chelsea for that, to help the youngsters and of course for his qualities which are still the same even if like me he is getting a bit older. but I am certain that he will bring us a lot. It is a new league, so he will be discovering that, but I am sure that he will adapt very quickly. We have a lot of ambitions this year with the signings and I hope that we will be able to get tangled in a race for the title.”
