Paris Saint-Germain captain Thiagio Silva has undergone knee surgery and will play no further part in the French champions' 2018-19 campaign, possibly also missing the Cope America with Brazil in the summer.

Paris Saint-Germain have announced that captain Thiago Silva, 34, underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee at the Pitié Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris on Monday. The operation was adjudged a success and the Brazil stopper now begins rehabilitation, but will play no further part in the capital club's season.

The meniscus injury, sustained in the 5-1 loss to LOSC in Week 32, has thus turned out to be a season-ending one, but it could also prevent the Brazil star from taking part in the Copa America, which is to be played in Brazil from 14 June to 7 July.

Paris Saint-Germain will be out to break a run of just one win in their last seven outings in all competitions when they travel to Angers SCO on Saturday.
