Thiago Silva's wife, Isabelle, has issued an apology on social media after appearing to call for Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino to be sacked following his team's 4-2 loss at home to Wolves on Sunday.
The Blues slumped to their 10th league defeat of the season to drop into the bottom half after conceding four goals for the second time in four days against Gary O'Neil's side at Stamford Bridge.
Isabelle took to X after the final whistle, posting: 'It’s time to change. If you wait any longer it will be too late.'
Her post seemed to be suggesting that Pochettino needed to be replaced, and sparked controversy given that her husband currently plays under the Argentine coach. However, she has now apologised, blaming her 'outburst' on being 'passionate' and 'saddened by defeats'.
'I'm sorry that my personal outburst as a passionate Chelsea fan has caused such an impact. I'm passionate about the team, I thrive on victories and I'm saddened by defeats,' she wrote on X.

Pochettino is under increasing pressure after his Chelsea side lost 4-2 to Wolves on Sunday
'We all want the same thing, a winning team, come on Chelsea!!'
Pochettino revealed at his press conference on Tuesday that Chelsea centre back Silva spoke to him personally after Isabelle's social media post in a bid to ensure there was no tension between the pair.
Pochettino refused to discuss the nature of their conversation, describing it as a 'private' matter that was handled before training.
'He came today to talk with me,’ he said. ‘I am not going to talk in the way we were talking. The important thing is he came and wanted to talk with me.
‘He knows me after more than 10 years, who I am, we are a very strong coaching staff and the way we operate. Of course he came to talk. We talked. It was private. And that's it.’
Back in 2018 when the Brazilian defender was playing for PSG she called out manager Unai Emery, writing on Instagram: 'Tactics, tactics, tactics?' after her husband was dropped for a 3-1 Champions League defeat at Real Madrid.
Two years later, she hit out at Liverpool's Andy Robertson after he shared a video of himself skinning Jorginho during a 2-0 win for the Reds in September 2020.

Isabelle has also not been afraid to criticise her husband's opponents and team-mates
She responded on TikTok: 'Chilwell is better than u dude you even lost to Southampton'. For good measure, more than 500,000 fans liked her comment.
But it is not just opponents that she has criticised, as she also slammed Timo Werner for his finishing after he failed to find the net in Chelsea's 1-1 Champions League semi-final first leg draw with Real Madrid in 2021.
'This is karma, guys. Every team I go there is a striker who keeps missing goals… this Werner, what is his name?',' she wrote on Instagram.
In a second video she added: '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.'
Isabelle has become even more vocal since Chelsea started slipping out of contention for major trophies in the last couple of years under American owner Todd Boehly.
Isabelle has become more vocal on social media, and expressed her frustrations with Chelsea's campaign at the end of last season
She blasted Graham Potter's decision-making last season when he left her husband on the bench for a 4-0 FA Cup defeat at Manchester City, as she posted: 'I just think that going back or looking for solutions when you take a hasty and totally wrong attitude is not wrong #goblues.'
With Chelsea going on to finish the campaign down in 12th place, she expressed her frustration on social media afterwards.
'Very difficult to see what I see on TV. At home the situation worsens because I don't know how to help, what to say. Very sad @tsilva3 you aren't alone,' she wrote.
Having questioned multiple managers in the past, it appeared Isabelle was turning on Pochettino this weekend, but she has now insisted she is fully behind the team as they prepare to face Aston Villa in a fourth round FA Cup replay at Villa Park tonight.
