Thiago Silva’s thumping header was what sent Ligue1 giants, PSG, into the quarter-finals stage of the champions league.
The Brazilian defender and PSG captain has expressed his displeasure at Mourinho’s comments of last December, when they were paired:
“This does not feel like taking revenge, but Chelsea were not showing us the respect we deserve, Mourinho in particular,” Thiago Silva told RMC.
“He said that he was happy to be paired with PSG because it was pretty close to London and that it was easy for the supporters to come over…”
“But I don’t think that’s the reason why he was happy with the draw. He said it because they beat us last season.”
