Today at Chelsea, Thiago Silva is undoubtedly one of the best defenders in history. Passed to AC Milan or Paris Saint-Germain, the Brazilian international defender has to face the big players, in particular Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, during the European evenings.

When you ask the reigning European champion which players give him the most difficulty between the Argentine and the Portuguese, his answer is clear.

“The small difference is that Messi, with the ball one-on-one or two-on-one, is difficult to stop. With Ronaldo I’m not saying it’s easy, but one player can score and others can watch, it gives you more security at the back. However, both Messi and Ronaldo are players capable of incredible things like Neymar. I think, however, it’s harder to defend against Messi than against Ronaldo, ”said Thiago Silva, who will meet Cristiano Ronaldo on Sunday in Matchday 13 of the Premier League.
