Silva and Zlatan together enjoying their triumph.

Thiago Silva makes young fan's day with match shirt and selfie after PSG title win

Published 1 Comments

Thiago Silva is a viral sensation. Anyone else remember when the picture of a young Silva alongside an infant David Luiz did the rounds and sent the internet into meltdown a few years back? Yeah, yeah, yeah - forget about the fact it wasn't actually them - it was still pretty cool right?

Well, now the Paris Saint-Germain defender is all over the internet again, this time on his own. Why's that you ask?

Because he's an absolute hero, that's why. The Brazilian centre-back was greeting the crowd following Paris Saint-Germain's title-sealing 9-0 victory (yes, you read that right, nine goals to zero) at the weekend when he handed his match shirt to a young fan.

He then went one step further and pulled the child down from the stands so he could have his picture taken with his hero. What a guy. You can check out the video of the heart-warming moment below.

Silva had plenty of reasons to celebrate, of course, having just captained PSG to one of the most dominant title defences in European football history.

The French giants wrapped up their third straight Ligue 1 title having established an incredible lead of 25 points over second-placed Monaco. The 9-0 win over Troyes that wrapped up the league trophy was also the biggest in the club's history.

The fly in the ointment was of, course, the news that talismanic striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic could well be on the move in the summer. 


The Swedish striker is out of contract at the end of the season and has publicly flirted with the idea of leaving the Parc des Prince in order to head towards the Premier League. 

When asked about his future in the aftermath of the win against Troyes, the former AC Milan and Barcelona star said: "For the moment I will not be at PSG next season. I still have a month and a half here. If they replace the Eiffel Tower with a statue of myself then I will stay at PSG, I promise."

Manchester United has been suggested as a possible destination and while Ibrahmovic hasn't named any names, the 34-year-old does seem to be keen on a move to England. 

“I have another three months here and, then, what will happen?” he said last month. “Big things will happen. So let’s see.” Asked whether he would favour a move to the Premier League, he added: “Let’s just say I am in good shape.”

Where do you think Zlatan Ibrahimovic will end up next season?
