Chelsea FC has won the 2020-21 edition of the UEFA Champions League after their 1-0 victory over Manchester City FC. The London-based club’s victory made former manager Thomas Tuchel and captain Thiago Silva champions of Europe.
After the match, Silva spoke to RMC Sport, where the 36-year-old discussed what winning the trophy meant to him, considering he spent all those years chasing it while with Paris Saint-Germain. Foot Mercato relayed the comments made by Silva to the French media outlet.
“It’s also a moment to have recognition for what Paris has done for me, but we haven’t managed to win it. Today I am very happy to have this cup; I hope that for PSG, this moment will come. All the pressure I had at PSG to win this cup,” Silva said.
“Every time Paris was eliminated, the culprit was me, it’s a shame because I gave everything for this team, but unfortunately I could not win this cup with them. I hope it will happen; I left a lot of friends there.”
