Thiago Silva has conceded that he ‘misses Milan so much’ and that he hopes one day to work with the club again.
The Brazilian centre-back enjoyed three full seasons with the Rossoneri before summer 2012’s €42m transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.
After helping Brazil to advance to the Round of 16 of the World Cup with victory over Cameroon, the 29-year-old took the chance to reiterate how he recalls his time at Milanello fondly.
“Milan has been very important for me,” Silva has told Sky Italia.
“[Assistant Coach Mauro] Tassotti and [Massimiliano] Allegri always believed in me and I am glad to have worked with them, particularly with Mauro for the defensive aspect.
“I miss them all so much. I hope one day to be able to return to work with them.”
