PSG boss takes the blame for Thiago Silva injuryMarquinhos will replace Thiago Silva in the PSG line-up -
Thiago Silva's latest injury setback was down to manager Laurent Blanc, according to the French club's boss himself.
Brazil and PSG captain Silva, 29, suffered a hamstring strain on Wednesday in their friendly with Napoli, being replaced by young countryman Marquinhos after only 14 minutes of action.
In response to claims Silva was raced back into action too quickly post-World Cup, Blanc told reporters: "For me, no, I do not think he took to the pitch too soon after the World Cup."
"Much has been said about the injury and who is to blame for the injury. Fine, I'll take the blame. The fault lies at my feet if it must lie somewhere."
"If we could have done things differently, we would have. Last year something similar happened and nobody said anything."
It is not known how long exactly that Thiago will miss due to his hamstring, but the timeframe is not thought to be a long one before his return to action.
