Chelsea’s Thiago Silva Slams PSG After Newcastle Loss

Date:

Thiago Silva Likes Instagram Post Slamming PSG’s Summer Overhaul After Newcastle Defeat

Paris Saint-Germain were handed a heavy defeat by Newcastle United in the Champions League on Wednesday evening, and Thiago Silva appears to have had his say on the matter. The PSG captain liked an Instagram post which criticized the club’s decision to offload Lionel Messi, Neymar and Marco Verratti in the summer.

PSG Hammered by Newcastle

PSG were hammered at St James’ Park as Eddie Howe’s side sealed a 4-1 victory with goals from Miguel Almiron, Dan Burn, Sean Longstaff and Fabian Schar. The defeat still leaves PSG second in Group F after they beat Borussia Dortmund in their opening game last month.

But the manner of the loss raises further questions over PSG’s ability to win the Champions League. And Thiago Silva appears to also have concerns over PSG’s direction as he liked an Instagram post which criticised the French club’s overhaul in the summer.

Instagram Post Criticizing PSG’s Summer Overhaul

The post was an image of Messi, Neymar and Verratti with the caption which read: ‘You have to eat s*** to give up this trio. You have to be stupid or sold out. These 3 can play until they are 50! Those who need strength.. don’t compare a truck full of watermelon with a Lamborghini.’

Luis Enrique: Result Was Unfair

Speaking after the game, PSG head coach Luis Enrique described the result as ‘unfair’. ‘I sincerely think the result is a bit unfair, but not totally. Congratulations to Newcastle, they played very good football. But the scoreline is excessive,’ Luis Enrique said.

‘I thought my player’s attitude was good throughout the game. I think the outcome of the game was fair even though the scoreline was perhaps too much in the favour of Newcastle. My players struggled with the pressing game but did everything I asked them to except in the final third of the pitch. We made some careless mistakes that lead to their goals.’

PSG Struggled With Atmosphere at St James’ Park

Meanwhile, PSG midfielder Manuel Ugarte claims his teammates struggled with the lively atmosphere at St James’ Park. ‘The atmosphere had an influence on the match. Newcastle are strong at home,’ Ugarte said.

‘It was not our best game. We could have done more. The score remains harsh. We could have been more aggressive, we could have shown a better state of mind, but the atmosphere will have been favourable to them.

‘I think they were a little more aggressive because they were back at home in the Champions League and that’s not usual for them. It’s not a criticism.

‘The truth is that the atmosphere helped them. I think we could have done more in terms of attitude and on an individual level, but these are matches that happen sometimes.’

Conclusion

PSG were handed a heavy defeat by Newcastle United in the Champions League on Wednesday evening, and Thiago Silva appears to have had his say on the matter. The PSG captain liked an Instagram post which criticized the club’s decision to offload Lionel Messi, Neymar and Marco Verratti in the summer.

The result raises further questions over PSG’s ability to win the Champions League, and it appears that even Thiago Silva has his doubts about the club’s direction. Meanwhile, PSG midfielder Manuel Ugarte claims his teammates struggled with the lively atmosphere at St James’ Park.
