A Brief Introduction of Football Player Silvestre

Mikael Samy Silvestre is a French international footballer. He plays as defender and last played for Werder Bremen of the Bundesliga. He has also played for the French national team. Silvestre is adept as both a centre-back and a left-back, though he has stated that he prefers playing in the centre.

Silvestre was previously a member of French junior team at the 1997 FIFA World Youth Championship. He earned his first senior cap for France on 27 February 2001 in a friendly against Germany that ended in a 1-0 win. He won the Confederations Cup both in 2001 and 2003 with France. However, he received criticism for his performance at UEFA Euro 2004, where he gave away penalties to both England and Croatia, before France were knocked out by Greece in the quarter-finals.

After the 2009-10 season, Silvestre was released by Arsenal and became a free agent. By the end of the season, he made 26 league appearances, scoring a single league goal. He was offered a trial at English club West Ham United in September 2012. He was also spotted training with the Manchester United team ahead of their Champions League fixtures against CFR Cluj on October 1, prompting rumors that he may be set to re-sign for the team he had played for ten years due to their defensive injury crisis.
