Thiago Silva offers warning to Chelsea fans following Carabao Cup defeat
Thiago Silva sends a message to Chelsea fans following their Carabao Cup defeat.
Thiago Silva has attempted to appease Chelsea fans following the club’s Carabao Cup semi-final loss to Middlesbrough on Tuesday night.
Hayden Hackney scored in the 37th minute to give Boro a 1-0 lead heading into the second leg at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea dominated possession at the Riverside and had 18 shots in total, but none of them found the back of the net.
Cole Palmer, who played as a false nine in the first quarter, squandered a handful of good chances, emphasising the team’s need for a highly clinical finisher.
The Blues’ travelling fans were noticeably upset with the outcome and booed the players when they went to thank them after the game.
Silva was also caught on camera attempting to calm them down before fleeing the stadium with his colleagues, but if his words at the Riverside weren’t enough to gain the fans’ forgiveness, the Brazilian’s latest message on X might be.
“I am the first one to feel frustration for today’s result,” the 39-year-old wrote on the platform. But there is still the second leg, and we will give it our all to make it to the final. We need to be together more than ever before. “Thank you for joining us today.”
