Thiago Silva’s wife fully supported Chelsea when she supported her son at a youth match on Wednesday night, despite his recent comments causing a stir.
Belle Silva cheered on her eldest son Isago when his under-15 team won a youth match, posting stories on Instagram saying “let’s go Chelsea” and “we won” with a blue heart emoji.
Understandably, that meant he missed the senior team’s 3-1 win at Aston Villa in the FA Cup, where Mauricio Pochettino eliminated Thiago Silva.
After Chelsea’s 4-2 defeat to Wolves on Sunday at Stamford Bridge, Silva appeared to call for Pochettino’s head, posting on X: “It’s time for a change. If you wait any longer it will be too late.
He has since apologized and attributed his “outburst” to being “passionate” and “saddened by the defeats.”

“I regret that my personal outburst as a passionate Chelsea fan has caused such an impact. I am passionate about the team, I enjoy the victories and I am saddened by the defeats,” he wrote on X.
‘We all want the same thing, a winning team, let’s go Chelsea!!’
Pochettino revealed in his press conference on Tuesday that Chelsea centre-back Silva spoke to him personally after Isabelle’s social media post in a bid to ensure there was no tension between the pair.
Pochettino declined to comment on the nature of their conversation, calling it a “private” matter that was discussed before training.
“He came to talk to me today,” she said. ‘I’m not going to talk like we were talking. The important thing is that he came and wanted to talk to me.
‘He knows me after more than 10 years, who I am, we are a very strong coaching staff and the way we operate. Of course he came to talk. Talk later. He was deprived. And that is.’
When asked why he left Silva for the game at Villa, Pochettino responded with a stinging response.
“Why the question?” he responded to ITV’s Gabriel Clarke. ‘I am a professional and a coach and I always choose my players for their performance and balance.
“I think I understand the question, but I want to be calm because I need to be professional and I always make my decisions from a professional point of view.”
Mauricio Pochettino responded irritably when asked why he had dropped Silva, saying: “I always choose my players for their performance and balance.”
Silva’s wife apologized for her comments, saying she is “passionate about the team” and “sad about the losses.”
Isabelle has often spoken out on social media, expressing her frustrations with the team.
When asked about it again, he added mischievously: “My answer was clear, wasn’t it?”
Silva had played the full 90 minutes against Wolves on Sunday and scored a late consolation goal, but was benched for the clash with Villa as Pochettino chose Benoit Badiashile and Axel Disasi as centre-backs.
He has played the full 90 minutes in most of Chelsea’s games this season but this is not the first time he has been put on the bench, as happened against Crystal Palace and Preston.
This isn’t the first time Isabelle has left her husband in a potentially complicated situation.
In 2018, when the Brazilian defender was playing for PSG, he called coach Unai Emery and wrote on Instagram: ‘Tactics, tactics, tactics?’ after her husband was eliminated in the 3-1 Champions League defeat to Real Madrid.
Two years later, he attacked Liverpool’s Andy Robertson after he shared a video of himself skinning Jorginho during the Reds’ 2-0 win in September 2020.
She responded on TikTok: “Chilwell is better than you mate, you even lost to Southampton.” For good measure, more than 500,000 fans liked her comment.
But he hasn’t just criticized his opponents, as he also criticized Timo Werner for his shot after he failed to find the net in Chelsea’s 1-1 Champions League semi-final first leg draw against Real Madrid in 2021.
The Silvas have been in a relationship since 2004 and married since 2005 and Belle regularly attends games to support her husband.
Isabelle has also not been afraid to criticize her husband’s opponents and colleagues.
‘This is karma, guys. In every team I go to there is a striker who keeps missing goals… that Werner, what is his name? “He wrote on Instagram.
In a second video he added: “We need a goal, we need to win this game but my attackers don’t want to score, I don’t know why they don’t score.”
Isabelle has become even more vocal since Chelsea began to fall out of contention for major trophies in recent years under American owner Todd Boehly.
She criticized Graham Potter’s decision-making last season when she left her husband on the bench during the 4-0 FA Cup defeat to Manchester City, posting: “I think going back or looking for solutions when you make a decision rushed and The totally wrong attitude is not bad #goblues.’
As Chelsea finished the campaign in 12th place, he later expressed his frustration on social media.
‘It’s very difficult to see what I see on television. At home the situation gets worse because I don’t know how to help, what to say. “It’s so sad @tsilva3 that you’re not alone,” she wrote.
Having grilled a number of coaches in the past, it appeared Isabelle was turning against Pochettino this weekend, but has now insisted she fully supports the team as they prepare to face Aston Villa in a fourth round replay. the FA Cup at Villa Park tonight.
