  • Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel has once again showed his funny side after he was caught imitating his defender Thiago Silva
  • Tuchel is known for throwing jibes and snide comments around in his press conferences
  • Silva was not at hand to respond to his bosses' actions as he was left at home as Chelsea travelled to Croatia for their Champions League opener

Thomas Tuchel has built a reputation for himself as one of the most elite managers in world football.

His Champions League triumph with Chelsea in 2021 with a squad that he had overseen for less than five months, had a huge impact on his CV. A season before, he had managed to guide Paris Saint-Germain to their first-ever Champions League final.

But it appears that the German is a man of many talents. A video circulating online spotted by Sports Brief shows the Chelsea boss doing an impression of veteran defender Thiago Silva.

Tuchel was overseeing a Chelsea training session ahead of their Champions League opener against Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia. Silva was left in London to get some rest after the 38-year-old had started all games this season.

Tuchel took full advantage of the experienced defender's absence to imitate his antics on the pitch. Considered one of the best defenders in his era, Silva is always commanding and directing the Chelsea backline.

The Brazilian is not always afraid to bellow orders to the young defenders around him. He is currently working with relatively young defenders in Trevoh Chalobah and Wesley Fofana.

His head coach captured his theatrics quite well in what is a funny sight to see.

Edouard Mendy rejects Chelsea's opening offer for a revised contract

Sports Brief had earlier reported that trouble could be brewing at Chelsea after first-choice goalkeeper Edouard Mendy rejected the first offer from the club for an improved deal.

Mendy is said to be holding out for a better deal from the club. The new deal offered by the club will see him still earn less than what his number two Kepa Arrizabalaga earns.

Mendy is one of Chelsea's lowest earners, having joined the club from Rennes in 2020. He went on to establish himself as a regular between the sticks, helping Chelsea to the Champions League title in 2021.
