Paris - Paris St Germain suffered an injury setback to their defence when first-choice centre back Thiago Silva sustained a thigh injury during an early-season friendly on Monday.

The Brazil international limped off after 14 minutes of his team's 2-1 win at Napoli and will undergo medical checks on Tuesday.

"It's probably a small tear in the back of his (right) thigh. I hope it's not too serious," coach Laurent Blanc was quoted as saying in French sports daily L'Equipe on Tuesday.
