Silva admits PSG duo absence not positive for the club

News

Edinson Cavani and Javier Pastore were once again not part of the group of the Parisians, having returned late from the winter break without a reasonable explanation.

Paris Saint-Germain skipper Thiago Silva has admitted that the absence of Cavani and Pastore only hurts the team regardless of the fact the Parisians have won both of their latest fixtures.

The pair were not in the squad when PSG beat Rennes 6-1 in the Coupe de France on Sunday and were also not featured in the group that won 2-0 against Amiens in the Coupe de la Ligue on Wednesday.

And while Silva admits that the actions of his team-mates are unjustified and unprofessional, he conceded that the squad can certainly feel their absence.

“They will come back, the coach and the club will give them the opportunity to come back,” the PSG captain stated, according to Goal.

“This is a very important moment for the club, we must stay together, even if they made a gesture that was not good for the group and the club. 

“It is important to come back as soon as possible. It was an important moment for the club, we must think before making gestures like that, it’s not good for everyone.”

The Brazil international then revealed that Pastore had desire to leave the club, but could not reach an agreement with PSG, while the situation with Cavani is different, but he refused to get involved in it.

“There is a difference between Pastore and Cavani. Pastore I think he told the club that he wanted to leave, in the end they did not find an agreement. Cavani, it’s a little different. It’s important for the club that he comes back as soon as possible.”
