Thiago Silva's injury shocks PSG

ANKARA - Last two season's French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain's Brazilian centre-back and team captain Thiago Silva will be out of action for few weeks on Wednesday.

Parisian giants "PSG" confirmed on their website that the 29-year-old centre-back suffered a hamstring injury during the friendly match against Italian Serie A's Napoli and he will be sidelined for several weeks.

It seems that Brazilian international Silva's fellow citizen David Luiz, who was transferred from Chelsea for €49.5 million transfer fee this summer, will take much more responsibility in PSG defence line.

Paris Saint-Germain return to league action on Saturday when they are going to host Bastia at Parc des Princes.
