Paris: Paris Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva will be out for "several weeks" with the hamstring injury that forced him off early in Monday's friendly against Napoli, the French champions confirmed on Wednesday.

"Tests undergone by Thiago Silva yesterday (ultrasound and MRI) have confirmed an injury to his right hamstring. He will be unavailable for several weeks," read a statement on PSG's website.

The Brazilian centre-back lasted just 12 minutes of Monday's 2-1 win in Italy before having to come off after back-heeling the ball in his own penalty box.
