Saint-Etienne striker Brandao has dismissed notions of a feud between him and PSG’s Thiago Silva after the teams’ 2-2 draw on March 17.

The two Brazilians had a running battle during the game, as Saint-Etienne came from 2-0 down to salvage a point against the Ligue 1 leaders, with some reports in France suggesting Brandao behaved too aggressively towards his compatriot.

However, Brandao has strongly denied any claims the match has resulted in a feud between the pair.

“I’ve done nothing to Thiago Silva,” the 32-year-old told Le10sport.com.

“There is no problem between us. I have also not had to apologise to him. It’s easy to criticise me on television when you have never played football. I am the one on the pitch.”

Indeed, the striker insists his combative style is an important part of his game, having scored 10 goals in 21 league appearances this season.

“I am a warrior who always wants to win,” he said.

“I was with the Ukrainian champions, Shakhtar Donetsk, and in France with Olympique de Marseille. I play with humility. Follow my football and my work. Anyone who criticises me had better shut up.”
