Thiago Silva ready to make PSG bow in Europe
Paris Saint-Germain summer signings Thiago Silva and Gregory Van der Wiel will be ready to make their debuts for the club in next Tuesday's Champions League meeting with Dynamo Kiev, coach Carlo Ancelotti said on Thursday.
"Van der Wiel and Thiago Silva will be ready against Kiev," Ancelotti said after leaving both out of his squad for Friday's Ligue 1 match at home to Toulouse.
Ancelotti added that Thiago Silva had been training alone since returning from the Olympics with Brazil carrying an injury.
"He will work with the team on Saturday. We have been very careful with him, because he injured himself at the Olympics. We wanted to take our time with him and ease him back," said the Italian.
The former AC Milan defender and Brazil captain was touted by PSG as the best defender in the world after signing a five-year deal at the Parc des Princes in July.
Dutch international right-back Van der Wiel moved to the French capital from Ajax on a four-year deal at the beginning of this month.
PSG were drawn in Group A of this season's Champions League alongside Dynamo Kiev, Dinamo Zagreb and Porto.
