Thiago Silva’s wife seemingly expressed her frustration with Mauricio Pochettino’s management as Chelsea suffered a 4-2 defeat against Wolves.
Despite Chelsea’s recent momentum with three wins in their last four league games, they faced a setback on Sunday.
Cole Palmer initially put the hosts ahead, but Wolves quickly turned the game around with a Matheus Cunha hat-trick and an Axel Disasi own-goal.
Although Silva scored a late goal for Chelsea, it was not enough to overcome the deficit, leading to their tenth Premier League defeat of the season.
Even before the final whistle, Belle Silva took to social media to advocate for changes at her husband’s club.
‘It’s time to change.’ She wrote in a post on X. ‘If you wait any longer it will be too late.’
Despite Chelsea’s recent challenges, Pochettino expressed confidence earlier this week that his team would eventually find success. He pointed to Liverpool’s inconsistent form during Jurgen Klopp’s early years as a parallel example.
“In the third year of Liverpool, they came to Wembley. We were at Tottenham and beat them 4-1.” Pochettino said.
“Nobody said, “Oh, it is the end of the world for Liverpool”.
After that, look what happened for them: they won the Premier League, they won the Champions League. In the year four, it started to work.’
Silva’s tweet is the latest instance of her using social media to openly share her thoughts on her husband’s club.
In January of last year, as the club suffered a 1-0 defeat against Manchester City, Silva expressed her disapproval of the boos that were heard at Stamford Bridge.
She uploaded a video of herself on social media with the caption:
“Don’t come to Stamford Bridge if you’re not singing COME ON CHELSEA !!! #blueisthecolour @ChelseaFC @tsilva3′.
