Chelsea defender Thiago Silva: AC Milan deserved victory at Juventus

Chelsea defender Thiago Silva hopes to see AC Milan reach the Champions League for next season.

Thiago Silva left Milan after almost four years for PSG in 2012.

"I've been thinking about this moment since I left Milan, I've been thinking about Milan's Champions League qualification every year," the 36-year-old told Sky Italia.

“This season we are close. I saw the game against Juventus. I was a bit sad for Juventus' Brazilian players: Danilo, Alex Sandro, Arthur. Even for Gigi [Buffon], we played together in Paris.

“But Milan played a great game and deserved to win, I think they deserve to qualify for the Champions League. They've had a great season and they deserve it for what they've done in six-seven months.

“I am still a Milan fan, I hope I can see them again and return to San Siro, which is a special stadium for me."
