PSG director of football admits letting Thiago Silva go was a “mistake” after bright start in England



Thiago Silva has performed so well for Chelsea since arriving on a free transfer this summer that many have been left wondering why PSG ever let him go.

He may be 36, but he’s still easily good enough for the Premier League, let alone Ligue 1. And the leadership he brings, on the pitch and off it, is immense.

PSG’s director of football Leonardo has been quoted today by BeinSport about the decision to let both Silva and striker Edinson Cavani leave, and the former player admitted he might have made the wrong call.

“It was a financial and generational problem. It was the moment to count on Marquinhos and Kimpembe,” he explained.

“The decisions were difficult to take. Aside from that, we could have made a mistake.”

Given the results Chelsea are getting, and given how important it is in a dressing room like PSG’s to keep a dominant leader in place maintain harmony, the regrets may only just be starting over in Paris.

Meanwhile, over here, there are probably already plans being made to keep the Brazilian stalwart around longer than initially agreed.
