Lampard admits Chelsea ‘got what they deserved’ at Arsenal
Thiago Silva’s wife Belle has admitted that her husband is ‘struggling’ due to Chelsea’s barren run of form. Belle says she feels ‘helpless’ and doesn’t know how to help the Brazilian superstar after a defeat with his mood worsening when he gets home.
Chelsea are currently in one of the worst ruts in the club’s history and find themselves in 12th place in the Premier League despite expectations of a top-four finish this season. A 3-1 loss to Arsenal last weekend marked a sixth consecutive loss for the Blues – equalling their horrendous form in 1993 under Glen Hoddle, a season in which they finished 14th.
This all comes despite new owner Todd Boehly and his consortium spending in excess of £600m on players since purchasing the club last year. Times at Chelsea look worse than ever and it’s taking a toll on the players as Silva’s wife reveals.
Taking to Twitter, she wrote: “Very difficult to see what I see on tv. At home the situation worsens because I don’t know how to help, what to say. Very sad @tsilva3 you aren’t alone.”
Silva joined Chelsea in 2020 on a one-year deal with the option of a second. The 38-year-old has since signed two short-term extensions with his current deal running until the summer of 2024.
He has been extremely vocal about the problems Chelsea face and in a recent interview pinned the blame on Boehly and Clearlake Capital’s excessive spending.

Speaking to TNT Sports Brazil, he said: “I think the first step has been made, an incorrect step, but it has been made. We can’t be blaming the managers if we don’t take responsibility. It’s a hard period for the club, with a lot of indecision.
“Change of ownership, new players arriving – we had to increase the size of the changing room because it didn’t fit the size of the squad. A positive point is that there are amazing players in the squad but on the other hand there are always players that are going to be unhappy.
“There is always going to be someone upset because not everyone can play. The manager can only pick 11 from a squad of 30-something – that’s tough. Some can’t make the squad, we signed eight in January, we need to stop and put a strategy in place otherwise next season we could make the same mistakes.”
