Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva hopes to eventually return to Milan
Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva has admitted he hopes to eventually return to Milan.
The 29 year-old won the 2010-11 Serie A title and the 2011 Supercoppa Italiana in the three years [2009 - 2012] he spent with the Rossoneri before joining PS-G in July 2012 for €42 million.
Silva has found instant success in France - he’s captained PS-G to four major honours - but insists his desire is to follow Kaká’s lead and rejoin Milan at some point in the future.
“I hope to follow Kaka’s footsteps by one day, even if not right now, coming back to Milan,” he told Sky Sport Italia, as reported by Football Italia.
“Milan was a wonderful time for me. I send the fans a big kiss, hoping to see each other again soon.
“It’s a shame I went away without saying goodbye, but it was only because I didn’t know that I would be leaving Milan.”
Silva, who will captain Brazil at next month’s World Cup, has had strong season with PS-G. He’s scored two goals in 28 league appearances and won the Ligue 1 title, as well as the Coupe de la Ligue and the Trophée des Champions.
