After slating Timo Werner for his slack finishing last week, Thiago Silva’s wife Isabele took to Instagram on Tuesday night hailing Chelsea goal hero.
Werner nodded in Chelsea’s first goal in their 2-0 win over Real Madrid, converting from close range after a deft Kai Havertz lob came back off the crossbar.
The Germany forward spurned a glorious chance to score for Chelsea last week and Mrs Silva was quick to vent on her Instagram story about the £53million striker who has endured a tricky first season in England.
But after scoring one of the goals that booked Chelsea’s place in Istanbul for an all-English final against Manchester City at the end of the month, Silva changed her tune.
“Werner, very good! That’s what I’m talking about,” the 34-year-old said on her Instagram moments after the first goal. “You know! You are the best my friend, love you!’
Last week, she remarkably said that her husband’s team-mate ‘didn’t want to score’ after he missed a super chance for an away goal from six yards against Real in Spain.
The 25-year-old Werner, who joined from German club RB Leipzig, has scored 12 goals in his debut season at Stamford Bridge.
