Thiago Silva’s wife, Belle, has issued an apology after calling for Chelsea to sack Mauricio Pochettino on Sunday.

In the immediate aftermath of Chelsea’s 4-2 defeat to Wolves at Stamford Bridge, Bella Silva wrote on social media platform X: ‘It’s time to change. If you wait any longer it will be too late.’

Pochettino confirmed on Tuesday that he had spoken to Thiago Silva about the incident but insisted that the details of their conversation are ‘private’.

Belle Silva has not deleted her post from Sunday but has now apologised for causing ‘such an impact’ with her reaction after Chelsea’s 10th defeat in the Premier League.

‘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,’ Belle Silva posted on X on Wednesday.

‘We all want the same thing, a winning team, come on Chelsea!!’

When asked if his relationship with Thiago Silva is good, Pochettino said on Tuesday: ‘Well, you can ask [him]. I think good. I think very good.

‘Yes, I think it’s always been good. From the beginning, you can see [that in] my press conferences and interviews, in the way I am always talking about him.’

Speaking on his conversation with Thiago Silva after his wife’s post, Pochettino said: ‘I think the important thing is he came and wanted to talk with me.

‘And, of course, he knows me after more than ten years ‒ who I am. We are a very strong coaching staff and [he knows] the way we operate.

‘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.’
