Silva ‘believes’ in new-look Milan

Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva ‘believes’ in the new-look Milan and ‘will support the Rossoneri from afar’.

Silva was part of the last Milan squad to win the Scudetto in 2011 and was widely considered to have been sold to PSG against his will.

“I believe in this Milan. Milan needed them,” the 33-year-old told Gazzetta TV, referring to the returns of Leonardo and Paolo Maldini in non-playing roles.

“Milan can do well, Gattuso’s very good. I’ll support the Rossoneri from afar.”

However, he quelled any talk of him moving back to San Siro, telling Canal+: “Leonardo didn’t call me.

“I’m at PSG and I’m happy in Paris, I have a contract here and I hope to finish my career here.”

“Buffon? He’s unbelievable, he still wants to win trophies and he’ll do many good things for PSG.

“He’s already a leader, I’m happy to play with a star like him.”
