Chelsea target Thiago Silva almost died from tuberculosis at 21

first_imgThiago Silva became one of the best defenders of his generation, but over a decade ago the Brazilian was weeks away from death after catching tuberculosis. The PSG centre back, who is wanted by Chelsea to sure up the West Londoner’s defence, was diagnosed with the bacterial infection while at Dynamo Moscow in 2005. At just 21 years old, Silva was hospitalised for six months while Russian doctors treated him for the condition he contracted six months before the illness was detected. The tuberculosis was so advanced, docs even considered removing part of his lungs to ensure his survival. But his mother, Angela, and wife, Isabelle stepped in advising against surgery that would’ve put pay to Silva’s football dreams before it had even started. “That would have ended my career, I needed guardian angels to take me away,” Silva told AP. Silva, now, 35, was signed by Dynamo from Porto in January 2005 for a fee of around £3.5m. Despite not playing a single game for the Portuguese giants, other than a smattering of matches in the reserves in the second division, Dynamo took a punt on the unknown entity. The Russian club’s President, Alexei Fedorychev had big plans for Dynamo that year, bringing in seven players from Portugal that January. He even appointed experienced Brazilian manager Ivo Wortmann to ensure the language barrier wasn’t a problem for the new signings and his team could challenge for the Premier League. But club doctors were surprised that Silva was getting tired so quickly. They also were shocked that most of their new recruits were bought without proper medical checks. Silva became very ill, suffering from symptoms including a high temperature, coughing fits, and severe sweating. Clearly it wasn’t a case of the flu, he was sent to the hospital where doctors conducted a series of tests to determine what was wrong. They were stunned to learn he was suffering from tuberculosis and had been for six months prior to their discovery. Simply put, doctors told him he was two weeks away from death and was extremely lucky the disease was caught when it was. “In 2005 I was sent out on loan to Dynamo Moscow, but the city was horrible, I was cold and got ill,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport magazine Sport Week back in 2011. “I was in the hospital for six months. I was 10kg overweight and, despite everyone else in the hospital being so skinny and not wanting to eat, I was always hungry. read also:Thiago Silva confirms Fiorentina talks “My mother said I didn’t look ill, but I couldn’t move. “The doctors would tell me to get up and go for a walk, but I couldn’t do it. This disease is also contagious, so I was put in isolation, only able to play computer games and go on the internet. read also:Thiago Silva confirms Fiorentina talks “Every now and then a doctor would come in and give me an injection, three or four times a day, plus 10-15 pills. “I eventually found out that I’d had tuberculosis for six months. The doctors said if another two weeks had passed, I might not have been able to recover. “I almost died. This is why, whenever I play, I think back to those moments in Russia.” During his treatment, medical staff advised the central defender he needed to have a part of his right lung cut out to survive the ordeal. Effectively, that would’ve meant he would have to quit football. “I told them no one would open my husband up and end his dream,” wife Isabelle told AP. “I am not a doctor, but no one believed he should go through surgery. “To see him wearing the Brazil shirt is a victory for us all, especially those that know him from those days.” During that dark time, Silva thought about retiring, despite being given a clean bill of health. It was the second time in his life he considered quitting the game. “I had thought of quitting football altogether,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport magazine Sport Week. “There was another occasion when I went to Flamengo for a trial and after two sessions they said I could go, as I was no better than any of the players they already had. “I told my mother I didn’t want to play football anymore, as nobody wanted me. “However, she said in that case I’d have to go work for my brother, so I immediately changed my mind and looked for another club!” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… center_img Promoted Content6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually TrueCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayGreatest Movies In History Since 19829 Iconic Roles That Could Have Been Played By Different ActorsBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeEd Sheeran’s 8 Best CollaborationsWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The World7 Things That Actually Ruin Your Phone10 Amazing Characters We Wish Were Official Disney PrincessesA Guy Turns Gray Walls And Simple Bricks Into Works Of ArtWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?last_img read more
