Ex-Manchester United player Paul Scholes claimed before the Chelsea game that Cristiano Ronaldo would have an ‘easy’ time facing Thiago Silva.
As it turns out, Ronaldo did not even start the game and his 30-minute cameo towards the end was not troubling for anyone.
After the game, Thiago Silva responded to Scholes’ comment on Instagram:
“It’s always easy, especially for those who have stopped playing!!” Silva wrote, clearly taking a dig at Scholes’ punditry since his retirement from the sport.
What a response by Silva – he lets his actions do the talking on the field but he’s not shy to say some words himself when needed!
