CHELSEA’S Champions League winner Thiago Silva slammed former club Paris Saint-Germain after his European triumph.
The Brazilian also heaped praise on former Blues boss Frank Lampard for bringing him to London.
Silva hit out at PSG for the pressure on his shoulders during their unsuccessful attempts to win the Champions League.
“It’s a shame, I really gave everything.”
The veteran defender added: “It’s the most important moment of my career, it’s unforgettable.
“But it’s also a moment for recognition of everything Paris has done for me, but we failed to win it.
“I’m very happy, and I hope that Paris will be able to get here soon.”
Silva was forced off in the first half with a groin injury but it could not take the gloss of their European triumph.

And the defender was quick to praise Lampard for his impact in bringing him to Stamford Bridge.

“Without him, it was difficult for me to win here, thanks to him for letting me sign here.”
