Speaking to reporters at today’s press conference ahead of tomorrow’s Ligue 1 clash with Bordeaux, PSG central defender Marquinhos encouraged his side to offer compatriot and 35-year-old central defender Thiago Silva a new contract, with his existing deal set to expire in June.
“Thiago Silva is in the process of proving it on the pitch: he is having really good matches. Even at the age of 35, he is continuing to play at a very high level. He is above all a good friend, a good person who is beside me in the dressing room, who helps me and who always pushes me forward. If I had to choose, of course I would want him to stay.”
