France and PSG star Kylian Mbappe has named Chelsea centre-back Thiago Silva as the greatest centre-back in the history of PSG.

The Brazilian spent eight years at PSG, helping them to seven Ligue 1 titles, five Coupe de France titles, six Coupe de la Ligue titles and UEFA Champions League finals last season.

Mbappe, who spent last three seasons with him has no doubt he’s the best defender in the history of the French side.

When asked to name his favourite centre-back by Le 10 Sport, Mbappe said: “Central defenders? Thiago Silva and Mario Yepes.

“Thiago Silva because for me he is the best defender in the history of the club with everything he has brought. He stayed a long time here.”

The 36-year-old former AC Milan star joined Chelsea on a free transfer and signed a one year deal with an option for a further year which is likely to be activated considering his performances for the Blues so far this season.
