Thiago Silva’s wife will definitely have a special place in the hearts of Chelsea fans following her recent comments about our London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
The mother of two took to social media to slam Tottenham Hotspur’s lack of silverware.
Isabelle Silva appeared to aim a barb in Tottenham’s direction as she replied to a post which asked the follower to name their team’s biggest rival without naming them with: “My football team’s rival has no trophies.”
Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted he was ‘tentative’ about bringing 36-year-old Silva to Stamford Bridge because of his age.
“I remember playing in the Premier League at 36 and I wasn’t playing like Thiago is,” Lampard said last month.
“I was in and out of the team, I couldn’t play week-in, week-out because I could feel it at that stage in my career.
“I was a bit tentative with bringing Thiago here on that front, as I knew he was a fantastic player but I wasn’t sure how he would take to the demands of the Premier League.
“He’s been fantastic and maybe I shouldn’t have been surprised because from working with him every day you see up close just how much he puts in.
“He prepares so well, he’s so dedicated, his reading of the game is fantastic and his desire to win headers and compete with anyone is superb.
“He’s really studious and I think it’s clear he will go on and become a manager if he wants to be. He’s been a great addition for us both on and off the pitch.”
