Thiago Silva Explains Why Paris Saint-Germain Signing Sergio Ramos Made Him 'Truly Sad'

Thiago Silva has opened up about why Paris Saint-Germain signing Sergio Ramos made him 'truly sad'.


PSG snapped up Ramos on a free transfer this summer, securing his services on a two-year contract.

But the length of the deal for the former Real Madrid defender has upset the current Chelsea man.

That's because Silva was not offered the same contract as Ramos, at the same age when he was at the club.

Of course, the Brazilian left Paris for London, penning a one-year deal at Stamford Bridge - with an option for a second.

The Blues announced the extension of Silva's contract earlier this summer.

On PSG signing Ramos, Silva told ESPN Brazil: "I have nothing against Sergio Ramos, but Sergio, at the time at which they offered him a two-year contract, was the same age as me last year.

"So that made me truly sad. I have not yet spoken about it with anyone, because it made me really sad because I felt like I had done nothing for the club.

"My departure is a page that has certainly been turned, but at the same time I think a lot, I reflect a lot on everything that has happened.


"I think that something else could have been done.

"Because it was not eight days, or eight months that I spent with PSG. It was eight years with lots of victories, lots of work to be able to change, and put PSG at the level that it is at today.

"I want PSG to win, because the club deserves all the respect.

"But, in light of the way that things played out, I have this feeling of sadness and I feel that it could have been done differently."
