Belle Silva, the wife of Chelsea defender Thiago Silva, has apologised for posting a tweet in which she appeared to call for Mauricio Pochettino’s sacking.

Pochettino confirmed he had spoken to Silva since his wife’s comments.

But in a new post on Wednesday, Belle apologised for her “outburst” online. “I’m sorry that my personal outburst as a passionate Chelsea fan has caused such an impact,” she said.

“I’m passionate about the team, I thrive on victories and I’m saddened by defeats.

“We all want the same thing, a winning team, come on Chelsea.”
