See below as Silva addresses this poor start and vows to Chelsea fans that he’ll work hard to bounce back…

🇬🇧 There are days when unfortunately hard work doesn't pay off the way we expected. I am upset, but I take responsibility for the mistake I made, as I always did. As difficult as it may be, we have to get over this and move on. I want to thank my teammates and the entire staff for their continuous support since I joined Chelsea FC. I am really grateful of that support 👊🏽. I promise to all of you that I will give everything I have on the pitch, putting all my energy and commitment into the games to come. 🇧🇷 Tem dias em que o nosso trabalho não acontece do jeito que esperávamos, fiquei chateado e assumo meu erro, como sempre fiz. Por mais que seja difícil, temos que levantar a cabeça e seguir em frente. Quero agradecer meus companheiros e toda a comissão técnica, que me apoiaram. Apreciei muito isso 👊🏽 . E prometo a todos vocês que eu vou retribuir em campo, com toda energia e empenho durante os próximos jogos. • • • #OhhThiagoSilva #CFC #Chelsea #ThiagoSilva #FamiliaSilva #ChelseaFC #London #LondonCalling #Londres #UnitedKingdom #England #Inglaterra #ThiagoIsBlue #WeAreBlue #ChelseaFans #BluesForever #cfcfans #chelseafootballclub #Chelseafcfans #washyourhands #lavezvouslesmains #LaveAsMaos #StopCorona #CoronaOut #StopCovid #PremierLeague
