Thiago Silva’s wordless reaction to the news that Tuchel has been sacked as Chelsea manager

Thiago Silva has taken to Instagram to give his response to the news that Thomas Tuchel has been sacked as Chelsea manager.

Todd Boehly made the surprising decision to relieve the German of his duties 24 hours ago, off the back of the club’s embarrassing 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb, although it has been claimed that the decision was made in advance and regardless of that result.

Many believed the German had enough credit in the bank to get himself through the tough times, with his sensational Champions League victory coming just over a year ago.

The season had no doubt got off to a rough start, with them losing their last three away games for the first time since Tuchel took over.

However, he had no doubt brought the best out of some of his players, with him not having a stronger relationship with anyone than Silva.

The pair had worked together at PSG, where they had come so close to finally bringing the Champions League trophy to the Parc des Princes.

However, the pair’s first campaign together in West London was full of success, with them getting their hands on the big one after beating Manchester City in Porto.

It’s easy to think that the pair will have had the strongest personal relationship at the club, so the defender’s simple reaction of two emoji’s crying on Chelsea’s official goodbye post no doubt show where his mind is at after the sacking.

The Blues owners seem to have turned to Graham Potter to become their next manager, having been in conversations with the Brighton boss yesterday having been given permission by the Seagulls.

While he doesn’t have the European experience that the club may be used to, the wonders he’s working at the Amex despite losing his key players Marc Cucurella and Yves Bissouma should point to the fact that he is simply a sensational manager.
