  • Chelsea lost 4-2 to Wolverhampton on Sunday at Stamford Bridge
  • Thiago Silva's wife tweeted calling for Mauricio Pochettino’s sack
  • The manager confirmed the player spoke to him about the matter

Isabelle Silva has apologised for causing unrest at Chelsea with her tweet calling for manager, Mauricio Pochettino to be sacked following the 4-2 home loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

On the back of losing 4-1 to Liverpool at Anfield, the Blues suffered another embarrassing defeat at Stamford Bridge to Wolves, with Matheus Cunha grabbing a hat-trick.

Thiago Silva scored a consolation goal to make it 4-2, and a few minutes later, his wife shared a post on X that the club needed a change, and the earlier, the better.

Some fans agreed to the post, while others cautioned her, claiming she is not a fan; she is the wife of a player with inside information, and such is not allowed.

Belle Silva apologises for viral tweet

The tweet clearly sparked problems among the fanbase and in the dressing room and was discussed at Pochettino’s press conference yesterday.

Belle, as she's shortly referred to, has made another post on social media apologising and explaining her agitation towards the state of the team.

"I'm sorry that my personal outburst as a passionate Chelsea fan has caused such an impact. I'm passionate about the team, I thrive on victories, and I'm saddened by defeats. We all want the same thing, a winning team, come on Chelsea!!💙💙💙" she wrote.

Per The Telegraph, speaking ahead of the FA Cup replay against Aston Villa tonight, Pochettino has confirmed that Blues veteran, Silva talked to him about the incident involving the latter's wife.

"He came today to talk with me. I'm not going to talk on the way we were talking. I think the important thing is he came and wanted to talk with me. Of course, he came to talk, and we talked, and I think that was private. And that's it. It's a private thing to keep inside," he said.

The Brazilian’s contract will expire in June and it is unlikely that the club will offer him an extension. He joined the club on a free transfer in 2020 and won the UEFA Champions League a year later.

Six times players’ partners spoke out

Sports Brief also previously analysed six times players’ partners spoke out after Silva called for Pochettino’s sack at Chelsea following their loss to Wolves at Stamford Bridge.

It was not the first time the Brazilian has caused controversy, previously referring to her husband's teammate, Timo Werner, as 'a worm' during the German's time at the club.
