Chelsea are being pushed into the worst situation.
Chelsea’s veteran defender Thiago Silva (39) openly shot the owner Todd Boelli. The Brazilian native revealed that he made a mistake from the first button after losing 0-2 in the second leg of the 2022-2023 European Champions League (UCL) quarterfinal against Real Madrid held at Stamford Bridge in London, England on the 19th (Korean time).
“The first step was wrong,” Silva said in an interview with Brazil’s TNT Sports. “If we don’t take responsibility, we can’t blame the coaches. The club is going through a difficult time with a lot of indecision.” “The size of the squad has grown to fit the suit. It’s positive to have amazing players in the squad, but it’s something that can’t be overlooked that there are always some unfortunate players.”
Chelsea, who knelt 0-2 in the first leg held on the road, recorded a total of 0-4 in the first and second legs, and advances to the semifinals were frustrated. Chelsea have sacked manager Graham Porter and hired Frank Lampard as interim manager. However, they have recently fallen into a swamp of four consecutive losses in the English Premier League (EPL) and UCL. It is the first time in 30 years since 1993 that Chelsea have won four straight titles. 메이저놀이터
“There are players who are always angry because not everyone can play,” Silva said. You have to come up with a new strategy or you could repeat the same mistakes next season.”
Boelli’s owner spent more than £600m (approximately 993 billion won) on player recruitment this season. But Chelsea are having their worst season. “Everyone is talking about coaching, but we have to look at what went wrong and make changes,” Silva said.
Silva’s contract with Chelsea ends in June next year. Chelsea are located in the 11th place in the EPL, so they also failed to advance to the UCL next season. He bowed his head, saying, “His active life is coming to an end. It may have been his last Champions League match, so it’s a very sad day.”
