Chelsea coach, Mauricio Pochettino, held a press conference on Tuesday (6) and, among other topics, spoke about the criticism of Thiago Silva’s wife, Belle Silva, towards the English team. The coach revealed that the Brazilian player approached him to discuss the matter.
“He came to talk to me today. I’m not going to tell you what we talked about, but the most important thing is that he came to talk to me. Our relationship is good, it’s very good. From the beginning, you can see in my press conferences, about how I speak to him”, commented Pochettino.
As a result, after Chelsea’s 4-2 defeat at home to Wolves last Sunday, Belle Silva took to social media and called for changes: “If you wait any longer, it will be too late.”
With this, Chelsea are in 11th place in the Premier League, far from fighting for the title, and coach Mauricio Pochettino has been under pressure. Under his command, the English team has recorded 14 wins, six draws and 11 defeats this season.
Furthermore, the coach also used Tuesday’s press conference to clarify a comment that Chelsea’s current group, including him, would not be “good enough”.
“We are all in this together. I want to clarify. I saw on television and in the media that some took my words out of context. I said that yesterday we were not good enough, and me first. That is the reality”, said Pochettino.
