Thiago Silva apologies to Chelsea fans over 4-1 lost to Newcastle

Amidst the post-international break optimism, Chelsea faced a challenging away fixture against Newcastle at St James' Park in the Premier League. However, what ensued was far from favorable for the Blues, who succumbed to a heavy 4-1 defeat against their opponents.

Adding to the dismay, Chelsea captain Reece James received a late red card, resulting in his dismissal from the match due to two bookings. Chris Waddle, as quoted by BBC Sport, criticized James, describing his actions as "silly."

Thiago Silva, the seasoned 39-year-old Chelsea center-back earning £110,000 per week (Spotrac), was the first player from the team to publicly address the aftermath of the Newcastle defeat.


Taking responsibility for the team's lackluster performance, Silva penned an apology on his Instagram account. He expressed his devastation, acknowledging the day's shortcomings and extending an apology to everyone affected by the defeat, particularly singling out his teammates for their unwavering support. Silva assumed full responsibility for the disappointing result and called for unity and resilience moving forward.

While Silva is known for his consistent and reliable performances, this match showcased a rare off-day for the seasoned defender. His error led to Joelinton's goal, further cementing Newcastle's advantage at 3-1 during the second half, effectively sealing the match's fate.

Acknowledging Silva's exceptional track record, it's evident that even the most reliable players can experience below-par performances on occasion. Despite his usual reliability, Silva's subpar display against Newcastle stands out, highlighting the team's collective struggle rather than solely attributing the defeat to one player
