Thiago Silva’s wife, Isabelle da Silva, aimed a dig at Timo Werner during Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The blues took the lead through Christian Pulisic but Karim Benzema equalised for Madrid to make it 1-1 in the Spanish capital ahead of next week’s second leg at Stamford Bridge.
Werner, meanwhile, had another game to forget as he missed a good opportunity to put Chelsea in front as his clear-cut chance from close range was saved by Thibaut Courtois.
And Isabelle da Silva, who was watching the semi-final clash at home with her children, was far from impressed with Werner’s latest miss.
In a video uploaded to her Instagram during the first half, Isabelle da Silva said: ‘This is karma, guys. ‘Every team I go to there is a striker who keeps missing goals… this Werner, what is his name?’
In a second video posted on her IG account, Isabelle da Silva said: ‘We need a goal, we need to win this match but my attackers don’t want to score, I don’t know why they don’t score.’
And, Thomas Tuchel said Werner, who has scored only one goal in his last 13 games for Chelsea, was ‘angry’ with his latest miss.

‘He missed a big one at West Ham, now he missed another big one here, that does not help,’ Tuchel said. ‘But it also doesn’t help to cry about it or to regret it all the time.
‘It’s like this, there are millions of people who have harder things to deal with than chances that you miss.
‘So this is the good thing about sports, nobody cares tomorrow. Today, we were sad, angry in the moment, this is normal. He’s angry, he is disappointed, tomorrow he has a free day and the next day he has to put his chin up.
‘He is a professional guy, he is a top guy, he works hard, he gets in the positions, and from there on we go.
‘We will never stop pushing, we will never stop believing, I have the feeling that everybody accepts the situation like this. A striker is easy, you score the next game and nobody speaks.’
