'Respect him!' – Thiago Silva's fuming wife slams commentator for slamming Chelsea defender in defeat to Brentford

THIAGO SILVA'S wife Belle has defended her husband who was criticised for not attacking enough during Chelsea's 4-1 defeat to Brentford on Saturday.

The Bees stunned the Blues as they put four goals past Edouard Mendy at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Rudiger opened the scoring with a stunning strike at the beginning of the second half, but it only took two minutes for the Bees to get back into the game through Vitaly Janelt.

Christian Eriksen quickly put Brentford ahead a few minutes later, before Janelt got his second.

And Yoane Wissa guaranteed all three points with just a few minutes to go.

Silva and his teammates were heavily criticised for the performance by fans and the media.

But one commentator came under fire from Belle, who argued that her husband deserved more respect.

She took to Instagram to say: "I'm here in my box at Stamford Bridge. I just listened right now to the commentator, who said that Thiago Silva is not attacking enough.

"Respect Thiago Silva because Thiago Silva arrived yesterday, Thiago Silva played for Brazil, Thiago Silva is very tired, Thiago Silva is 37 years old, he plays like he is 20 years old.

"So respect him, he's not a machine. He needs to relax, alright?"

Chelsea fans fell in love with Belle last year when she told her husband to "Show Daniel Amartey who is boss" as the Blues faced Leicester in the Premier League.

She also took a swipe at Liverpool full-back Andy Robertson by saying that Ben Chilwell is a better player.

In a TikTok post from December 2020 she commented: "Chilwell is better then u dude you even lost to Southampton."
