CHELSEA legend John Terry thanked Thiago Silva for giving him his shirt after Aston Villa beat the Blues.

Silva played 90 minutes on the final day of the season as Chelsea nearly threw away their top-four spot.
It was only Spurs’ late comeback at Leicester to win 4-2 that saw the Blues cling on to fourth spot as Liverpool leapfrogged them into third with a win over Crystal Palace.
But despite the close shave, spirits were high in the Blues camp after the game as the guaranteed their spot in next season’s Champions League.
Former Paris Saint-Germain star Silva, 36, remained humble as ever after the game as he thanked God.
And he also found time to hand Terry his shirt from the game.
Terry’s Villa side had a solid season finishing 11th and actually finished as the campaign’s biggest over-achievers, according to a Premier League supercomputer.
And Dean Smith’s assistant was delighted with Silva after the match.
He posted a picture of the Brazil international’s shirt and captioned it: “What a player this man is. Great to see you mate. Legend.”

Terry – who recently revealed he wants to become Chelsea manager one day – hit headlines again at the weekend for an interview he gave to the Times.
The 40-year-old claimed his legal representatives reached out to the producers of Anton Ferdinand’s documentary Football, Racism and Me during production.
The CPS charged Terry for using racist language during Chelsea’s game against Ferdinand’s QPR in October 2011.
Ferdinand accused him of calling him a ‘f****** black c***’.
Terry was cleared and then subsequently charged by the FA, fined £220,000 and given a four-game ban.
And in it he called for Terry to offer an explanation. But in an interview with the Times, Terry suggested contact was made but rebuffed.
