Thiago Silva touted as being the best

Former AC Milan and Italy defender Paolo Maldini has claimed that Thiago Silva is one of the best defenders in the world at the moment.

He said that the player has been impressive throughout his career and that for him he is one of the best of his generation.

He admitted however that he had not followed the player closely during recent games as French football is not accessible in Italy, but he remembers the player when he was playing for Milan. He said that this is a player that behaves professionally on and off the pitch and is always giving his best on the field.

Maldini said that modern defenders are asked to participate in the attack as well, but he believes that this should not hinder your defensive duties. He said that Thiago Silva is one of the rare players that can balance attack and defence and help his team whether they are attacking or defending.

Paolo Maldini believes that with players of this quality, it is highly possible that Paris Saint-Germain win the Champions League in the years to come. He said that the French club has been buying the best players in recent years and he believes that they will continue to improve.

Thiago Silva is currently playing for Paris Saint-Germain in the French league. The player said that at the moment he wants to focus on his football with the French side and help his team win the league. He believes that they have made good progress under their new manager, but it is in Europe that they need to deliver the goods. He believes that the club will make some new addition during the summer transfer window and he believes that the team will become much stronger next season.
