Thiago Silva committed to PSG project

14 August 2013 12:43

Thiago Silva wants to see out his contract with Paris Saint-Germain, despite being linked with a move to Barcelona.

PSG bought Silva from Milan 12 months ago and the Brazil international subsequently led the club to their first Ligue 1 title since 1994.

The 28-year-old was consistently linked with a transfer to the La Liga champions earlier in the close-season, but put pen to paper on a new contract at the Parc des Princes last month.

And the defender has insisted that he has no intention of leaving the French capital in the near future.

"It is my responsibility to stay in Paris and keep my contract until the end," he said. "There was some speculation about Barcelona, if I would go or not.

"But I always make it very clear. I'm very happy there and I want to stay, I believe in the project, even after the departure of Ancelotti and Leonardo, nothing changed.

"And my decision to try and leave, it's not true. I was very clear with our president, I will stay until the last day of my contract. Of course, if PSG say to me 'look, Thiago, We don't want you anymore', it would be different.

"But I'm very sure, I will stay till the end of my contract and I'm very calm about this."

Silva struggled with a hamstring injury last season that restricted him to 22 league appearances, but has been working hard to ensure he does not have similar problems in the new campaign.

"I started a project with PSG and my physiotherapist to have a different year," he added. "Last season I had many injuries and I didn't play as much in case I risked another problem.

"It was a difficult year for me. This season I reflected on my mistakes and decided to do something different, I want to be better prepared to be able to play well at the top level without injuries."
