Brazilian national team defender Thiago Silva is determined to win the European Champions League title this season. According to him, the trophy would be a beautiful farewell gift for him with the French Ligue 1 club.
As is known, Thomas Tuchel’s troops have just secured tickets to the Champions League final after defeating RB Leipzig. The defending French Ligue 1 champions won 3-0 at Estadio da Luz, Lisbon, Portugal, in the semifinals early in the morning WIB (19/08).
Marquinhos managed to open Les Parisiens’ taps in the match, while Angel di Maria and Juan Bernat scored two more goals. With this crushing victory, Paris Saint-Germain finally stepped into the European Champions League final for the first time in history.
Meanwhile, Thiago Silva is sure to leave the French club at the end of this season. This is because the Brazilian defender’s contract at the Parc des Princes has actually ended since last June.
This means that the European Champions League Final will be the last match between the Brazilian national team players and PSG. For this reason, the former AC Milan player is determined to win a trophy as a gift for his farewell to Les Parisiens.
“I choose not to talk about (my future) because that won’t help us for now,”
“For now, the final will be my last match. I hope to win it, something I’ve been dreaming of since coming here in 2012. “Silva was quoted as saying on the official UEFA website.
As for Paris Saint-Germain, they still have to wait for their opponent in the final between Bayern Munich or Olympique Lyon. Thiago Silva doesn’t care who his team will face, because the most important thing is preparation.
“This is the strongest squad [I know], not only on the pitch but also off the pitch. We have to continue this mentality. Everyone will remember the team that won the Champions League.” He said.
Meanwhile, the final match itself will be held on 24 August. Meanwhile, the match between Bayern Munich and Lyon will take place in the morning WIB (20/08).
