PARIS (Reuters) - Centre back Thiago Silva has been ruled out of Paris St Germain’s Ligue 1 trip to Dijon on Friday because of illness, coach Thomas Tuchel said.

The Brazil international “has been ill overnight and he is not with the squad,” Tuchel told a news conference on Thursday.

PSG, however, welcome back holding midfielder Idrissa Gueye after the Senegalese recovered from a groin injury, a key return in the absence of Marco Verratti who is sidelined with a calf injury.

The French champions lead the standings with 27 points from 11 games, eight ahead of second-placed Nantes.
