Football : Apologies from Thiago Silva

Football :

Very affected by the defeat of PSG against Bayern Munich in the final of the Champions League (1-0), Thiago Silva paid tribute to the Parisian supporters, the Brazilian defender not forgetting to greet the leaders of the champions of France .

Thiago silva had probably hoped for another exit. For his last match with the capital club after eight years at the PSG, the Parisian captain had undoubtedly imagined closing the Parisian chapter by lifting the trophy of the Champions League. Alas, the last step was probably too high for Thomas Tuchel’s men, the champions of France finally having to admit defeat facing Bayern Munich (1-0).

The Brazilian defender did not hide his bitterness at the end of the meeting, his last in the Paris jersey. “The disappointment is there, we must continue and raise our heads. Not everyone gets to the final. The match was decided on small details. We knew that they centered a lot at the far post, we were punished, thus entrusted the native of Rio de Janeiro at the microphone of RMC Sport. Unfortunately for me, it was my last match in Paris. It’s even worse for me. This year, things were going very well, except for this game. “

I hope I can come back in the future

Despite the immense disappointment, Thiago Silva did not forget to greet the Parisian supporters, the former Milanese also taking care to greet the leaders of the champions of France. But more than a farewell, it is a goodbye that the Brazilian launches at PSG. “Thanks everyone for the support, it was amazing. Respect is the most important thing and they have always shown it with me. I apologize to the supporters for this final disappointment, he said. The club will progress further and will once again have the opportunity to win the Champions League. I hope I can come back in the future to do something in Paris. My gratitude for this club is incredible. Thank you to the President, to the Emir for the confidence. “

But while waiting for a possible return to PSG in a new role, Thiago Silva intends to continue his playing career for several more years, with the firm intention of playing for the World Cup in Qatar in 2022. “I still want to play three or four years. I want to prepare to play the World Cup in Qatar in 2022. We will see how my body will react, ”he confirmed.

PSG scores against Bayern

The grimace of Neymar, who did not live up to the event.

2/12

Navas (6)

The Costa Rican goalkeeper, not 100% physically, made the match he could. He was saved by his right post (22nd) before making a decisive save on a recovery from the head of Lewandowski (31st). He also captured a powerful center from Kimmich (45th + 1). Powerless on the opening of the score (59th).

3/12

Kehrer (4)

He put a lot of energy at the start of the match in his right lane, both defensively and offensively, even though he was again limited with the ball. Coman ramped up and the German defender then took to the water. He could have given a penalty to the French winger (45th + 1), is exceeded on the opening of the score of the head of Coman (58th) and on a 2nd center towards the same player (61st).

4/12

Thiago Silva (6)

Always so lucid, he increased the clearances in the first period and even saves his team just after the opener (63rd). He was passed like all the defense on goal (59th) and was warned for a foul on Lewandowski (83rd).

5/12

Kimpembe (7)

He too seemed extremely focused and chained more or less easy interventions (17th, 22nd 44th, 50th, 61st, 87th), including a decisive head deflection just after the goal (61st). It was not enough against this exceptional team from Bayern. He gave himself a nice hook on Müller (44th).

6/12

Bernat (5.5)

He worked a lot defensively and did what he could, abandoned by Mbappé in the first period. He let Lewandowski hit the post (22nd) but made a header (40th). Replaced in the 80th by a too messy Kurzawa.

7/12

Herrera (6)

Present for his harassment work, he was aggressive from the start. Even if he lost a dangerous ball (12th), he gave two superb goal balls (23rd and 45th). But, over time, he struggled to withstand the opposing pressure and had no influence in the recovery.

8/12

Marquinhos (6)

He was again invaluable in the recovery in front of the central hinge. His defensive science allowed him to perform “easy” interventions (12th, 30th, 42nd, 56th, 73rd) and he was solid in the air. On the restart, he played as easy as possible and ended up opting for long balls. He missed his face-to-face in front of Neuer (70th).

9/12

Paredes (4.5)

He had a very promising first quarter of an hour in a role of remote leader. After a superb opening for Mbappé (15th), he then disappeared from circulation in the face of the opponent’s battering. He failed to be a leader in the game. Verratti took over in the 65th minute without finding his attacking players.

10/12

Di Maria (6.5)

The best Parisian player in the game. And again, the game is not all the time spent by him on the right. If he hit above, but from the right (23rd), he then made a dangerous cross towards Mbappé (67th) and offered this superb hidden pass for Marquinhos (70th). To wonder why Tuchel released it before the last 10 minutes.

11/12

Neymar (3)

After his two XXL performances, he hardly made the difference. Strangely, he ran a lot at the pressing level, especially on Boateng, and perhaps lost some juice quickly since he rarely accelerated full axis. He did not convert his opportunity in front of Neuer (18th) and did not find the frame (74th). He dived in the second half with failed checks (76th, 78th, 79th).

12/12

Mbappé (4)

Left striker, he posed problems early in the game in his lane. He notably offered a great opportunity for Neymar (18th), but did not score on two strikes (14th and 15th) and missed a huge opportunity (45th). Tuchel obviously asked him to defend more when he returned from the locker room and he seemed exhausted from halfway through the second half.
