Thiago Silva’s wife has apparently called for Mauricio Pochettino to be sacked as Chelsea suffered a 4-2 defeat at Wolves.
After a disappointing start to the campaign, the Blues went into Sunday’s tie having regained some momentum with three wins in their last four league games.
Cole Palmer continued his excellent start to life in west London by firing the hosts ahead on 19 minutes, but the tide quickly turned and Wolves took control of the game with a Matheus Cunha hat-trick and an Axel Disasi – own goal.
Silva scored a late consolation to reduce the deficit but the damage was done and the Blues fell to their tenth Premier League defeat of the season.
Before the final whistle was even blown, Belle Silva took to social media to call for an upheaval 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 struggles, Pochettino claimed earlier this week that his side would eventually come good, citing Liverpool’s mixed form during Jurgen Klopp’s early tenure as an example.
‘In Liverpool’s third year they came to Wembley. We were at Tottenham and beat them 4-1.’ Pochettino said.
“Nobody said, ‘Oh, it’s the end of the world for Liverpool.’ After that, look what happened to them: they won the Premier League, they won the Champions League. In the fourth year it started working.’
Silva’s tweet is just the latest example of her using her social media to express her feelings about the state of her husband’s club.
In January last year, as the club fell to a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City, Silva expressed her disapproval of boos being chanted around Stamford Bridge.
She uploaded a video of herself on social media with the caption: ‘Don’t come to Stamford Bridge if you don’t sing COME ON CHELSEA !!! #blouisthecolour @ChelseaFC @tsilva3’.

Meanwhile, during Thomas Tuchel’s time in charge, she questioned why her husband did not appear in marketing materials on the club’s site.
“I went to Stamford Bridge today and I noticed that the pictures around the stadium have changed. But I don’t see a picture of @tsilva3 anywhere. Why @ChelseaFC?’
Thiago Silva’s current deal will expire at the end of the season, although the 39-year-old revealed last month that he does not know when he will hang up his boots.
“We know it’s almost over, but it’s not the end yet.” He said. ‘So choose the right time. I am still able to maintain a good performance, my grades are good, and that gives me peace of mind to continue. Now, the future belongs to God.
“Let’s finish well here, these four months and see what happens going forward, but I’m very relaxed about it.”
