Thiago Emiliano da Silva born on 22nd September 1984 commonly known as Thiago Silva plays as the central defender for PSG. He is definitely the best central defender for Brazil. Let’s look at a match where he shows his true potential by not giving Lionel Messi and his colleague’s a chance to goal. We all know how good Lionel Messi is in attacking and taking the ball to the goal, this scene was reversed during the match between Paris Saint-Germain’s 2-2 draw with Barcelona. There was a stereotype that Brazilian defenders are ultimate at dodging and attacking but they turn clueless at back. This was the difference between Thiago Silva and other defenders, as he was also good at the back.
The Brazilian Was Strong In Strength In The Tackle And Commanding In The Air
He was doing a great job as captain for PSG. There was a brief moment when Coach Massimiliano Allergi deployed Thiago Silva in the midfield when injuries hit the squad. This shows the coach trust towards him and his command over the ball. His immense skills tempted PSG to pay 46 million Euros for the player who helped the club to their first league title since 1994. This could be precisely called as the start of the player with PSG as he never had to look back and established himself as one of the best defenders the club could have. Everyone knows about the time when Brazil lost dearly in the finals against Germany in 2014. This is considered to be one of the most humiliating losses. This loss had brought immense criticism on each one of the player in the team except for Thiago Silva whose reputation hasn’t changed even after their great loss to Germany. This shows people belief in his skills and ability to win matches for Brazil.
This Brazilian is a skillful tactician and ball winner. He has been termed as the world’s best defender for past couple of years. It is clearly seen that it becomes impossible to dribble past him, which clearly states his ability as central defender. Messi has praised Thiago Silva in a press conference saying that he is undoubtedly one of the best players. These words, specially coming from the best attacker surely shows his command over the game. There is this stereotype surrounding people to never vote a central defender for golden ball, as they go unnoticed. This is a real pity, if they would have considered them as well, then Thiago Silva would definitely have backed at least one of them for his magnificent performance till date. The Brazilian Captain is simply the best modern center half in the game right now and he is also a great leader. His ability to remain cool even at dire situations show his temperament an important must trait for a captain.

At the 114th minute Thiago Silva came with another wonderful header and the PSG equalized the game and won the game on away goals rule. This tremendous win couldn’t have been possible without the two Brazilian defenders Thiago Silva and David Luiz for their wonderful performances. This point has been mentioned direct that Thiago Silva is not only one of the best defenders for Brazil, but also one of the best in the present world.
