Thiago Silva rejects transfer talk

Milan defender Thiago Silva has admitted that he wouldn’t mind spending the remainder of his career at San Siro.

The Brazilian defender reveals he is playing with a lot of confidence at the moment.

“It’s true that I now play in a relaxed manner even without Alessandro Nesta by my side, as I have more confidence in my abilities than last season,” Silva told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Nesta is unique and often talks to me on the pitch. I still remember my first friendly against Varese, as he didn’t stop giving me advice and instructions for a moment.

“I even got annoyed that time and told him he was giving me a headache, but I’m used to it now!”

The 26-year-old defender has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, but he says he would like to remain at Milan for years to come.

“I like the idea of becoming a symbol of the club. I’d be happy just winning half of what Maldini won in his career, so I’d love to follow his footsteps.

“I did start out as a midfielder, but now I only play there when the team needs me to. It’s fun going forward every now and then to have a shot on goal.”
