Sometimes, I used to put my school uniform on when I took the bus to training - that way I didn’t have to pay the fare. The bus drivers would say, “Sorry young man, this bus isn’t going to your school”. I always told them the truth. I said, “I’m not going to school but if you can help me make my dream come true then I’ll be eternally grateful.” They never once threw me off, they always let me go to training, so I need to thank those bus drivers as well.

Happy 31st Birthday Thiago Emiliano da Silva |  September 22, 1984

danid2ois: Yo for real, I might not know how to put a comma, I might not know how to put a point, and maybe I don’t know how to write because I didn’t have a great opportunity to learn. I’m a person who doesn’t like injustice. I’m a person who couldn’t care less about what people think of me. I don’t live politically and I don’t live to please. I live in search of good energy, real people, people who live for a purpose. That abdicates of the family for a dream, suffering more than anyone when the work wasn’t as expected, overcoming major barriers, that falls and rises, living without regrets, following the path because they live for something greater than comments that sound more like an excuse than coherence. In fact I will confess that excuses are for losers and is the least thing we are! We work for love, for pleasure, passion to see our dedication turning into achievement. Many people say that our profession is easy, but curiously only a few serve to comment. Yes brother, we are slaves, to progress we need around us winners and not historians. Many know who we are and a few really know our stories. Therefore, the greatness of a great champion is to fall and rise, is to be able to get up and go in search of their dreams, go on! To win? I have won everything I could’ve win, but doesn’t suit me because my big dream is to continue. Our great merit is to reinvent ourselves when we win. I’m Brazilian, I’m Baiano, Northeastern, I’m from juazeiro, to get where we are you have to eat a lot of dust. I live of axé, who comes from there knows how it is. We don’t live in illusions because we have roots and those who have roots never falls, cause no matter how big a trunk is if it don’t have roots it can’t keep up! I love you my bro @thiagosilva_33 we’re brazilians workers and we are proud of our country but not of those who represent us. I love you brother

COPA AMERICA 2015: FAVORITE PLAYERS

Thiago Silva (September 22nd, 1984): Thiago Emiliano da Silva, commonly known as Thiago Silva, is a professional Brazilian footballer who plays as a central defender for the Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain and the Brazilian national team.

After moving to Europe to join AC Milan in 2009, Silva established himself as one of the highest rated defenders in the world, winning the Serie A title with the Rossoneri in the 2010-11 season. In July 2012, Paris Saint-Germain signed him for a reported 42 million, making him the third-most expensive defender in history behind Rio Ferdinand and teammate David Luiz. With PSG, Silva has won three consecutive Ligue 1 championships, two consecutive Coupes de la Ligue and one Coupe de France.

A full international since 2008 and a non-playing member of their team at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Silva captained Brazil to victory at the 2012 FIFA Confederations Cup and fourth place at the World Cup a year later, both on home soil. He was also part of their squads for two Olympic Tournaments - winning bronze in 2008 and silver four years later - and as many Copa America editions, earning over 50 caps in all.
