Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva admits Chelsea defeat hurt
Thiago Silva has admitted Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League quarter-final exit to Chelsea was a setback.
The Ligue 1 outfit agonisingly missed out on a place in the semi-finals, after Demba Ba netted an 87th minute winner to send Chelsea through on away goals.
"When you take a hit like we did against Chelsea, it makes you feel a bit lost,” said Silva, as reported by Ligue1.com. “But when you love winning like I do, you have to know how to come back, to look forward to the next game.”
Paris Saint-Germain responded to their Champions League disappointment by defeating Lyon 2-1 at the Stade de France on Saturday night to secure the Coupe de la Ligue, while they are also set to retain the Ligue 1 title.
