Paris Saint Germain

Silva demands PSG focus

6th April 2019, 12:11 by Neil Foster

Paris Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva insists the players will not drop their standards during the rest of the season.

PSG are on the cusp of yet another Ligue 1 title, with victory over Strasbourg on Sunday, coupled with defeat for Lille at Reims, seeing Thomas Tuchel's men lift the trophy for the sixth time in seven seasons.

It would be easy for the Parisians to take their feet off the gas with such a commanding lead in the race for the Le Championnat crown, but Brazil international Silva has made it clear that will not be the case this weekend - or in any subsequent game.

"We need to be 100% each and every match," he told PSG.fr. "We try to prepare well for every game, always respecting our opponents.

"Against Toulouse we were missing six key players but we still played very well. We were focused from start to finish. We have to focus for the 90 minutes. It's never easy."
