Exhausted Silva to miss final PSG games

Brazil and Paris Saint-Germain skipper Thiago Silva is "physically and mentally exhausted" and set to miss the final two games of the French Ligue 1 season for the French champions, coach Laurent Blanc said on Friday.

"Thiago Silva will not play (against Lille)," Blanc said, adding that the centre back could also miss the final match against Montpellier.

"As the goals have been achieved he wants to heal himself, it's understandable," said Blanc, adding that Silva had often played "in pain this season".

Blanc added that after helping PSG to a second straight Ligue 1 title on Wednesday Silva was now focusing on "Brazil who have a chance of winning the World Cup".

PSG have two games left this season with the sole motivation of beating the Ligue 1 points record of 84 held by Lyon. They currently have 83 points.
