“It's time to change. If you wait any longer it will be too late,” Belle tweeted after the Blues 4-1 loss against Wolves last Sunday. Back to have defeats have put Chelsea 11th in the Premier League table.
She apologized on the same platform, X, on Wednesday morning. “I'm sorry that my personal outburst as a passionate Chelsea fan has caused such an impact,” she wrote.
“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!!
As shown below, Belle Silva kept up the initial critical Tweet.
Strangely enough, Blues supporters also came out of the woodwork to praise Silva's wife. “You don't have to apologize, what you said was true,” replied one fan.
Most Chelsea faithful remain angry with the losing culture at the club and would like to make significant changes, starting from the top by sacking Pochettino.
Pochettino is in the hot seat after nine league wins this season, but a chance to salvage the broken season with a win against Liverpool in the EFL Cup final later this month.
Why did Silva's wife issue the apology?
Mauricio Pochettino spoke with Thiago Silva on Tuesday to address his wife's discontent. It was the 39-year-old Brazilian defender who approached his boss.
“He came today to talk with me. I am not going to talk about the way we were talking. The important thing is he came and wanted to talk with me and of course, you know me after more than 10 years, how I am,” Pochettino told reporters.
“We are very strong coaching staff and very strong in our way to operate and the way that we are. he came to talk, we talk and that was private and that is it. Private things for me we keep inside.”
Silva intends to keep playing into his 40s, but Chelsea won't renew his contract this summer.
