Former PSG captain: “Sergio Ramos was the same age as me last year”

Former PSG captain: “Sergio Ramos was the same age as me last year”

The arrival of Sergio Ramos to PSG aroused many emotions in the world of football; Joy in Paris, sadness in Madrid and discomfort in London. This last feeling was evidenced by the former center-back of the Parisian team Thiago Silva, who was the captain and reference of the team until August 2020, when the club decided not to renew his contract and let him go free to Chelsea.
After spending eight years at the club, winning more than 20 titles at the national level, the leadership of the French team chose not to extend their bond with the player, understanding that, due to his age (35 years), his time at the club had finalized.
With the pass in his possession, the Brazilian ended up at Chelsea and a year later he witnessed how his former team announced amidst great fanfare the brand new signing of the former Real Madrid captain at 35 years of age.
“I have nothing against Sergio Ramos, but at the time they offered him a two-year contract, he was the same age as me last year (35). That really saddened me. I haven’t told anyone yet, but it made me very sad because I felt that I hadn’t done anything for the club, ”Silva lamented in an interview with ESPN Brazil.
At that time, PSG surrendered to the defender on social media before letting him go without offering him an agreement to extend his link with them. “I think something else could have been done, because it wasn’t eight days, it wasn’t eight months, it was eight years of many victories and a lot of work to be able to change and bring PSG to the level where it is today,” he said.
At the same time, the former Milan also assured that his non-continuity in Paris had nothing to do with an economic issue. He wanted to continue but they wouldn’t let him: “It saddened me not to have received anything, it’s as if I hadn’t done anything for the club… Many fans believed that I wanted to continue receiving the same amount. It has nothing to do with Chelsea or my salary. I receive less than half ”.
Despite his discontent over his departure from PSG, Thiago Silva shone in his first season with the Blues. The experienced defender managed to win the trophy that eluded him throughout his stay in Paris: the Champions League, by beating Manchester City in the final last year. At the same time, he also won the European Super Cup after his team beat Villarreal.
The center-back, who will turn 37 next month, won 25 titles with the Parisian team: 7 league championships, 7 French Super Cups, 6 League Cups, 5 French Cups, and he became one of the club’s historical references . (Infobae)
