Thiago Silva’s wife takes aim at Chelsea team-mates following Fulham defeat


Thiago Silva’s wife has posted yet another outspoken tweet following Chelsea’s latest defeat. 

Graham Potter watched on as his side fell to their third consecutive defeat in all competitions at the hands of Fulham, leaving them with just one win in the league – against Bournemouth last month – since mid-October. 

Chelsea have struggled for goals and creativity for months, with the midfield and attack often appearing shorn of confidence and the ability to dominate teams.

Seemingly expressing yet more displeasure with the current iteration of Chelsea, Thiago Silva’s wife posted on social media longing for the equivalent of her husband in midfield and attack.   

‘If there was a Thiago Silva in attack and one in midfield, with what we already have in defence,’ she wrote. 

Despite registering 20 shots – 10 of them on target – Chelsea floundered for much of the night at Fulham, with Kai Havertz in particular missing a host of chances to continue his abysmal run of form. 

To make matters worse for the club, Joao Felix, their new loan signing who they paid £9m to take for just half a season, was sent off just shy of 60 minutes into his debut after an ugly lunge on Fulham’s Kenny Tete. 

Her latest tweet comes just days after she appeared to take aim at manager Potter after Chelsea’s meek exit from the FA Cup at Manchester City last weekend, in which her husband was an unused substitute. 

Her tweet then read: ‘I just think that going back or looking for solutions when you take a hasty and totally wrong attitude is not wrong #goblues.’ 

Pressure from the wife of Thiago Silva appears to have only cranked the heat up on Potter that little bit more.

The former Brighton manager, who was appointed by Todd Boehly and the Chelsea hierarchy back in September, has seen much of the goodwill from his solid start to life in west London evaporate as his squad thins and results increasingly worsen. 

To make matters worse for the club, Joao Felix, their new loan signing who they paid £9m to take for just half a season, was sent off just shy of 60 minutes into his debut after an ugly lunge on Fulham’s Kenny Tete. 

While Belle Silva has been outspoken on matters relating to the club in the past, they have largely been in the direction of concerns off the pitch. 

For instance, back in August she queried why there were no photos of her husband on the new Stamford Bridge designs. 

After the Blues drew 2-2 with Tottenham at Stamford Bridge in August, she wrote ‘Today I went to Stamford Bridge, and I noticed that the photos changed around the stadium. But I don’t see a photo of @tsilva3 anywhere. Why @ChelseaFC?’ 

Meanwhile, supporters have previously caught her shrift. Following the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City last week, she took issue with the boos that appeared to ring out across the ground, shouting ‘come on Chelsea’ in an apparent bid to try and gee up those around her.

Meanwhile, in April last season, Belle leapt to the defence of her husband after claiming he was criticised for ‘not attacking enough’ during a 4-1 defeat at home by Brentford. 

‘I’m here in my box at Stamford Bridge,’ she said. ‘I just listened right now to the commentator, who said that Thiago Silva is not attacking enough,’ she said. 

‘Respect Thiago Silva because Thiago Silva arrived yesterday, Thiago Silva played for Brazil, Thiago Silva is very tired, Thiago Silva is 37-years-old, he plays like he is 20-years-old.

‘So respect him, he’s not a machine. He needs to relax, alright?’
