Senior Brazilian defender Thiago Silva finally confirmed his departure from Paris Saint-Germain after approximately eight seasons with the French club.
In fact, the news of the captain’s departure had been echoing in recent months, but this time he himself spoke in front of the media.
This was disclosed by former AC Milan after the European Champions League final against Bayern Munich at dawn WIB (24/08). In that match, Les Parisiens were defeated with a final score of 0-1.
In other words, the French Ligue 1 Champions failed to score their First Champions League trophy history. That is, Thiago Silva left with his head bowed.
It should be noted, Thiago Silva was actually able to stay longer at Paris Saint-Geramin because he still performed well in the club’s defense. However, it seems that the player wants a new challenge in his career before hanging up his boots.
In addition, staying at PSG cannot guarantee more opportunities to play, while on the one hand he is aiming for a place in the Brazil National Team squad for the upcoming 2022 World Cup.
“This is my last game as a PSG player. I feel sad and I will return for other roles in the future, but at this point, I have to change.”
“I want to play for another 3-4 more years and be the part of the Brazilian National Team at the Qatar World Cup (2022).” said Silva quoted from the Daily Star.
So far, it is not known where Thiago Silva is going after leaving Paris Saint-Germain. It is believed that the player will go to the Premier League club, Chelsea.
There are also rumors that the player will fly to Italy to defend Fiorentina. It’s just that the two rumors were denied by those concerned, because he has not made a final decision until now.
“I have not received any offers. There have been reports of my agreement with Fiorentina, it is not true,”
“My agent is talking to Fiorentina and with other clubs. I will make decisions during the family vacation session in the next few days,” he said.
