Thiago Silva Hails ‘Unstoppable’ Neymar
Paris Saint Germain skipper Thiago Silva has hailed the club’s new strikeforce, calling his compatriot Neymar ‘unstoppable.’ The club bought Neymar for a world record fee of £198m from Barcelona this summer and also added teenage prodigy Kylian Mbappe for a similar fee.
Silva, who has spent many years playing with Neymar in the Brazilian national team, says that stopping the player in training is ‘nearly impossible.’ PSG travel to Glasgow for a Champions League tie with Celtic this week.
Silva told the pre-match press conference, “ Neymar and Mbappé have brought us unbelievable individual qualities. Neymar's speed is almost unstoppable. Playing against him in training is helping me a lot.
“With the intelligence and quality of Neymar, it is very easy for him to fit into the team. He adapted quickly, he is already embedded in our tactical system, just like Mbappé and Dani Alves.
“I'm sure we have many players with a lot of quality, and with them we are better able to have a good Champions League campaign. Whether we will win it or not, I do not know. Preparation is very important and we are doing a good job.”
