A day that many saw coming but didn’t think would arrive soon, the departure of Thiago Silva. In what is possibly his last performance at the Parc des Prince, Paris Saint-Germain supporters said goodbye to their captain.
The 35-year-old played the entire first half before watching the rest of the match from the sidelines. After the friendly was over, the capital club captain headed over to the wear the ultras were where they gave him a proper farewell.
Silva spoke with the club’s website afterward to discuss his emotions. Despite the match against Celtic FC, O Montsro found it challenging to prepare for his last game at the Parc.
“This morning, it was difficult for me to concentrate on the game. It was an unforgettable moment, which will remain in my heart. This bond with the supporters, this respect between us, is what will remain until the end of my life. The story is not quite over. We will work to end the season well.

Although saying goodbye to the ultras is very sentimental and the right way to say farewell. There’s no denying that Silva will want to depart from PSG winning all three trophies in the coming weeks. Especially becoming the first capital club captain to lift the UEFA Champions League.
“We have a tough game on Friday, which can earn us another trophy, and then another final the following Friday. Then there will be the big team goal and the Champions League. We have everything to end the season well, and I am convinced that the team will give everything. I hope to go out the front door.”
