Thiago Silva exclaims “SEMPRE FORZA MILAN” with joy
Thiago Silva expressed his happiness when his previous club AC Milan advanced to the Champions League semi-finals last night. Silva joined Milan in 2009 and won the Serie A with Alessandro Nesta in 2010-11. Sadly he departed the Rossoneri in 2012 to join Paris Saint-Germain in an agreement widely rumoured to be worth more than €40 million.
He joined Chelsea on a free transfer in 2020 and won the UEFA Champions League in his first season. However, Chelsea are not having as successful season in 2022-23, and they were knocked out of the tournament by Real Madrid in the quarter-finals. After the match at Stamford Bridge, Thiago Silva spoke to SportMediaset about what Milan’s advancement for the Champions League semi-finals meant to him. His thoughts, as reported by MilanNews, are as follows:
“I’m happy for them, it’s been a long time since Milan played in the Champions League and they’re doing very well. Now let’s see if we can, it will be a Milan derby in the semi-final. It would be important for the city of Milan. Sempre forza Milan! Unfortunately I can’t be 100% happy because we were eliminated. But I’m happy for Milan”, he said.
The Rossoneri were underdogs against an in-form Napoli side who are leading the Serie A standings. However they proved their worth by reaching the last four. Stefano Pioli’s side has met Napoli three times in the last three weeks. They won two games and drew one, advancing to the Champions League semifinals. The outstanding play of Milan’s goalie Mike Maignan was a key factor in the victory over Napoli.
