He said: "You win everything, in France it is useless. We have to win the Champions League, but that's not how we're going to win. I think that especially the fans, you have to really support the team.

 “Because the team needs the atmosphere, when we play at the Park, outside. We know that supporters always make the difference, negatively and positively."


The fans did not take well to PSG's elimination in the competition with a negative atmosphere at their following games.

The fans began to boo their side on their return to action after the defeat to Real Madrid, with Neymar, Sergio Ramos and Kylian Mbappe in particular targetted by the negative atmosphere.

Silva will be hoping for further success during his time at Chelsea, where he is quicly becoming a fan favourite after his impressive form.
