Thiago Silva: Life in Paris is difficult
PSG defender Thiago Silva has told Globo Esporte that he is still finding life in Paris difficult, following his late summer move from AC Milan.
Thiago, 28, explained that he hasn't had time to settle into life in the city, as of yet, and has some difficulties with the language-barrier when away from the club.
However, the defender - for all the difficulties encountered - is doing his best to adapt and enjoy a bright future in the French capital.
"I'll be honest, it's difficult. I am not really accustomed to the city yet. I haven't bought a house," the 2011 Samba Gold trophy winner said.
"This week I saw one I liked and my wife liked, we are coming up with an offer for the owner to see if we can sort it out as quickly as possible. It's a beautiful city, but it's quite hard to live in Paris."
Regarding the problem of language, Thiago revealed that most of the club's stars are currently using Italian to communicate, while his biggest problem thus far has been ordering food!
"We don't have a translator because we don't need one often. Almost the whole squad speaks Italian - many have come from Italy," he continued.
"With others, communication is sometimes sign language. I'm doing classes to learn a bit more, so I can get some food! I joked with people this week because I am always eating the same thing at the hotel.
"When I go out, I am not left hungry, but I don't eat what I want. It's been very interesting. I hope it will be even better going forward."
