"He showed me the way" - Marquinhos suggests Chelsea star is still one of the best in the world in his position


PSG defender Marquinhos has suggested that Chelsea centre-back Thiago Silva is still one of the best in his position. Marquinhos and Silva spent seven years at the Parc des Princes.

During that period, the two Brazilians built up a great understanding with one another at the heart of the PSG defence. Marquinhos has heaped praise on his former teammate, telling Julien Maynard in an interview with Telefoot :

"Thiago showed me the way. He was one of the best defenders in the world, and he still is..."

Silva left PSG in 2020, and has gone on to find huge success at Premier League giants Chelsea. Last season, the Brazilian defender won his first UEFA Champions League title with the Blues. His performances for Thomas Tuchel's side have attracted praise, with many dubbing him the best defender in the Premier League even at the age of 37.

Marquinhos will look to follow in his Brazilian teammate's footsteps as a long-awaited first UEFA Champions League trophy still eludes the former AS Roma defender.

Since joining PSG in 2013 from the Italian side for £26.8 million, Marquinhos has been a key player for the team. He came close to winning his first Champions League title in 2020, only to lose to Bayern Munich in the final.
