Thiago Silva's wife, Belle, was not happy with a TV commentator's comments about her husband during Chelsea's shock defeat to Brentford – and she made her feelings known on Instagram. You can see the clip below.


Thomas Tuchel's side suffered a first home league defeat since September on Saturday afternoon.

After taking the lead early on in the second-half through Antonio Rudiger [and what a goal, by the way], Brentford hit back two minutes later thanks to Vitaly Janelt.

Christian Eriksen then put the Bees ahead with a first Premier League goal since his return, before Janelt and Yoane Wissa completed the scoring as Thomas Frank's side edged towards safety.

A number of Chelsea players were criticised during the surprise defeat at Stamford Bridge, including Brazilian centre-back Thiago Silva, who was criticised for not ‘attacking’ enough, according to Belle Silva.

Belle has been known to publicly defend her husband on social media and Saturday was no different after she overheard a TV commentator's analysis of Silva.

“I’m here in my box at Stamford Bridge. I just listened right now to the commentator, who said that Thiago Silva is not attacking enough,” she said.

“Respect Thiago Silva because Thiago Silva arrived yesterday, Thiago Silva played for Brazil, Thiago Silva is very tired, Thiago Silva is 37 years old, he plays like he is 20 years old.

“So respect him, he’s not a machine. He needs to relax, alright?”

Last year, Belle hit the headlines when she criticised Chelsea striker Timo Werner following a poor performance in front of goal against Real Madrid in the Champions League.

She took aim at Werner and said: "This is karma, guys. Every team I go to there is a striker who keeps missing goals... this Werner, what is his name?"

A second video was then posted in which she explained: "We need a goal, we need to win this match but my attackers don't want to score, I don't know why they don't score."

Werner was eventually substituted on the hour mark for Kai Havertz and manager Thomas Tuchel admitted he was frustrated with the performance.

Thoughts on Belle Silva's defence of her husband on Saturday?

Let us know in the comments.
