Thiago Silva Urges PSG to ‘Play With Heart and Head’ Against Liverpool
Paris Saint Germain captain Thiago Silva has urged his team ‘to play with their heart and their head’ for Wednesday evening’s crucial Champions League tie against Liverpool, where defeat would complicate qualification for either team.
Using his programme notes, the Brazilian defender said, “Now we will prepare the match against Liverpool, which will be a difficult match. It will be necessary to win at home, play well and prepare well this match because a draw or a defeat would complicate qualification.
“You have to play with your heart and your head. You have to play well to beat Liverpool. An average match will not be enough against a team like that. This is the highest level, it will be well prepared. It's a decisive match.
“It will be necessary to play it with the head, and not only with the heart. We have to want to play it, but we will have to do it with intelligence. There is a lot of quality on both sides, and the details will make the difference.
“We will be at home and, with our fans behind us, we will be even stronger because the atmosphere in the Parc des Princes will be beautiful."
