Thiago Silva, the PSG captain, spoke about the influence of absences of Javier Pastore and Edinson Cavani and he has admitted that these two crucial players will be missed at the team.
These two players from South America are still out on the winter break and it’s unclear when are they going to be used for the first time after their arrival – and their captain admitted that it is a big loss as both of them are really important for the squad. These two were not at the team as they managed to eliminate Amiens from the Coupe de la Ligue after a 2-0 win…
The former AC Milan player spoke about his two teammates as he said, according to Goal: “They will come back, the coach and the club will give them the opportunity to come back. 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.”
He also added that it’s not a good gesture to come back that late: “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.”
In the end, Thiago Silva claimed that there is a slight difference between the situations of Cavani and Pastore and he tried to explain that and claimed that Cavani is a crucial team player and should be available as soon as possible to help his teammates: “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.”
