Nine days after arthroscopy of the meniscus of the right knee, Thiago Silva returned to training this Wednesday afternoon at the Parc des Princes. The defenseman and captain of PSG wearing a knee brace appeared on the lawn with his partners, for a session that took place before the eyes of 7000 children of the club's foundation.
The Brazilian was satisfied with the exercises of support and changes of direction with the physiotherapist Bruno Mazziotti and did not touch the ball with his teammates. But the fact that he is already on the ground underlines his express recovery and his willingness to apply for the next Copa America that will take place in his country from June 14 to July 7.
The time trial is committed to O Monstro ("the monster" in French) since Tite, the Brazilian coach, must announce his list of 23 selected this Friday, May 17. Thiago Silva injured his right knee in the first period against Lille (1-5) on 14 April. He then attempted a comeback, but had to finally give up the final of the Coupe de France against Rennes (2-2, defeat 6 t.a.b. to 5), April 27, before resolving to undergo surgery.
