Chelsea fans beg Thiago Silva ‘delete this.. we have a relegation battle to worry about’ after Champions League tweet

CHELSEA fans have told Thiago Silva to get his priorities in order after he expressed his regret at not being in the Champions League.

The veteran 38-year-old defender mentioned the official Champions League account on Twitter and posted a crying emoji to show how much he is missing the competition as it kicked off yesterday.

Silva has appeared in the Champions League 106 times, winning it once with Chelsea in 2021.

But the club have missed out on this season’s iteration after finishing 11th in the Premier League last season.

Chelsea have carried on last season’s poor form so far this time out, winning just one of their five Premier League games played so far.

And fans reacting to Thiago Silva’s tweet were saying he needs to worry about correcting that form before they can dream of playing in the Champions League again.

One fan tweeted: “We have a relegation battle to worry about king.”

While another fan wrote: “Thiago Silva delete this!”

A third sarcastically said: “Project 2030” as he suggested that would be the next time Chelsea would be competing in the competition.

Seemingly in response to the trolling, Silva has now pinned the tweet.

It was another summer of upheaval at Chelsea as they signed 12 players and sold, loaned or released 23.

Their transfer spending also surpassed £1billion since owner Todd Boehly took over the club in May last year.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino lamented his club’s injuries following their 0-0 draw with Bourenmouth this weekend.

He said after the game: “With all of the squad fit we can compete but now we don’t have all of the squad available.”

“What can we do? For me, nothing to say… the fans can do this. We had 12 injured this weekend: I am going to cry, I am going to complain, to who? I have to accept”.

Chelsea will look to return to winning ways as they host Aston Villa next Sunday.
