Quoted by RMC via Le 10 Sport, Stephan said of former PSG captain Thiago Silva: "He is a complete and exceptional player. It's unfortunate not to have him in the French league anymore, but I think the Premier League has recovered a very, very high level defender.
"I would have liked to have had him with us but it is not calibrated for clubs like ours but for clubs of a higher level."
He also said, "This year he is also in a great team with great ambitions and which is making a fantastic start to the championship after a very large recruitment."
