Thiago Silva Suffers Knee Ligament Damage

Thiago Silva Suffers Knee Ligament Damage

Brazilian defender Thiago Silva has suffered knee ligament damage, Chelsea confirms.

The 38-year-old defender sustained the injury during Sunday's 2-0 defeat against Tottenham.

He limped off after just 19 minutes during the London derby and was replaced by Wesley Fofana.

Chelsea revealed that he will be out for an unspecified period, albeit reports claim the defender could be out for as long as six weeks.

A statement from Chelsea reads: "Having sustained a knee injury during the first half of Sunday’s match against Tottenham Hotspur, Thiago underwent further assessment and a scan on his return to the training centre on Monday.

"Scan results from those assessments have confirmed damage to Thiago’s knee ligaments and he will now work closely with the club’s medical department during his rehabilitation to return to action as soon as possible."

Silva is apparently out of Chelsea's all-important Champions League last-16 second-leg against Borussia Dortmund and would also be a doubt for the quarter-finals should the Blues advance.
