Former France player Johan Micoud slates "overpriced" Thiago SilvaSilva, 29, made his Brazil debut back in 2008
Former France international Johan Micoud has launched an astonshing attack on current Brazil captain Thiago Silva, deeming him overpriced and rated a better player than he truly is.
Micoud, who won 17 caps for his country and played for Bordeaux, Parma and Werder Bremen, told reporters: "Thiago Silva is not a leader to me."
"I have trouble with this player. He gestures very large class but I feel it is overpriced compared to its features. He has not won much. He played at Milan in the Italian league where there were not many people."
"He wins with PSG because it's PSG, but when it is important, he is not there."
Silva, who has won 50 caps, has picked up one Serie A title, two French league championships and the Confederations Cup last year with Brazil. He joined PSG from AC Milan in the summer of 2012 for a €42 million fee and is reported to be on wages in the region of €185,00 per week.
