AC Milan defender Thiago Silva plays down personal heroics in title success

AC Milan defender Thiago Silva has played down his own heroics in their title triumph.

The Brazilian has been one of the outfit's top performers this term, winning the praise of boss Massimiliano Allegri.

"I don't like to talk about my merits, but those of others," he told Sky Sport Italia. "The Scudetto that we have won this year is thanks to everyone, especially the attackers.

"I have really improved this season with Alessandro Nesta alongside me and I want to personally continue playing until I am 40.

"I thank everyone who says that I am the best. But, for me, Manchester United's Nemanja Vidic is the best."
