Chelsea forward Timo Werner has played down the criticism he received from Thiago Silva’s wife and revealed his teammate was quick to apologise.
Isabelle da Silva was among those to criticise Werner after his lacklustre display in Chelsea’s Champions League semi-final first leg clash against Real Madrid.
In a video uploaded to Instagram, she said: ‘This is karma guys. Every team I go to there is a striker who keeps missing goals… this Werner, what is his name?!
‘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.’
Werner has confirmed Thiago apologised to him following the social media outburst, although he played down the incident and said things like this can happen when emotions are running high.
The Germany international made amends this week, scoring the opener as Chelsea beat Real Madrid 2-0 at Stamford Bridge to book their place in the Champions League final.
‘Sometimes that can happen when the emotions are overflowing,’ Werner told
Sky Germany. ‘Thiago also apologised directly to me the next day.
‘That’s when the matter was ticked off. So I’m all the more happy today, not only for her but also with the other wives of my teammates!
‘Hopefully me and the team can get them to cheer again. It’s for the best that the women that are at home are happy, and that the fans are happy.’
Isabelle da Silva changed her tune after Werner scored to help Chelsea knock Real Madrid out of the Champions League on Wednesday night.
She said: ‘Werner, very good. That’s what I’m talking about. You know how to score a goal. You’re the best, my friend! Love you!’

Werner, meanwhile, paid tribute to his Chelsea teammates after they advanced to the Champions League final, where they will meet runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City.
‘The last 10 minutes I was screaming a lot. I had no voice,’ the 25-year-old said.
‘When we started with the manager we were 10th in the league and now we reach everything – on the road to the top four, we can win the Champions League and the FA Cup.
‘Our team is incredible. How we control the rhythm against a team with world-class players. We are young but not stupid to make easy mistakes.’
