Thiago Silva has admitted that he was hurt by Paris Saint-Germain's decision to sign Sergio Ramos after not being offered a deal by the club despite the duo being close in age.

The Brazilian left the French club last summer after his contract expired and joined Chelsea, helping them win the Champions League. A season prior, he was part of the PSG side that lost to Bayern Munich in the finals, but failure to offer him a new deal saw Silva leave the Ligue 1 giants after eight years.

And the 36-year-old insisted he has no problem with Ramos, but the club's decision to sign the former Real Madrid defender, despite his age, left him hurt.

"I have nothing against Sergio Ramos, but Sergio, at the time at which they offered him a two-year contract, was the same age as me last year," the 36-year-old told ESPN Brazil.

"So that made me truly sad. I have not yet spoken about it with anyone, because it made me really sad because I felt like I had done nothing for the club.

"My departure is a page that has certainly been turned, but at the same time I think a lot, I reflect a lot on everything that has happened. I think that something else could have been done. Because it was not eight days, or eight months that I spent with PSG. It was eight years with lots of victories, lots of work to be able to change, and put PSG at the level that it is at today.

"I want PSG to win, because the club deserves all the respect. But, in light of the way that things played out, I have this feeling of sadness and I feel that it could have been done differently.”

Silva is yet to make his Premier League for the Blues this season, with Thomas Tuchel opting to bench him for the wins over Crystal Palace and Arsenal.
