Silva ready 'to fight' for Paris Saint-Germain

Silva ready 'to fight' for Paris Saint-Germain

Thiago Silva, Paris Saint-Germain's latest big-money signing, says he came to the French club for the quality of the football, not the money.
The Brazil defender said Friday at his introductory news conference that he wasn't really interested in French football until the arrival at PSG last year of Leonardo as sporting director and Carlo Ancelotti as coach, according to the Sipa news agency.
Both men were brought in by PSG's wealthy Qatari owners as part of their bid turn the French club around and attract better players. They have also spent a lot of cash, but the results so far have been less than stellar.
But Silva was adamant that his undisclosed salary was not the primary draw and that he had come to Paris "to win, to fight."
