Brazilian football legend, Romario has lashed out at Paris Saint-Germain captain, Thiago Silva, for his recent poor performances and dip in form.
The 1994 World Cup winner and World Best Player of the Year, Romario hit Thiago Silva, saying he doesn’t have the quality and personality of a player and was a shame to the Brazilian National team.
Silva had his National team captaincy taken from him by coach Dunga and handed to Neymar. He has had questionable moments in recent years with his indiscretion leading to a suspension for the all-important semi-final clash with Germany at the 2014 World Cup, which they lost woefully 7-1.
His 70th minute handball led to Paraguay’s equalizer, which their opponent eventually won on penalties and led to Brazil’s ouster at the 2015 Copa America.
According to Romario, the 31 year old centre-defender is finished. He told L’Equipe saying, “It’s over for him, the train has left the station.”
“He demonstrated that he did not have enough personality to wear the Brazil shirt. If I was the coach I would not select him.
“I’m not questioning his quality as a footballer. I just wonder about his psychological strength. In this regard, he’s failed across the board,” he added.
