Thiago Silva also returned to this fate which made him win the C1 today after so many failed attempts with the Parisian colors.
« Every time Paris was eliminated, we looked for a culprit, and it was always me. It’s a shame because I have always given everything. I failed to do it for Paris and I hope they will one day. But I’ll always be Red and Blue. »
The Brazilian ended by thanking Thomas Tuchel who relaunched him this season.
