Wife of Thiago Silva makes U-turn for Chelsea teammate Werner

The wife of Thiago Silva has heaped praise on Chelsea teammate Timo Werner after their Champions League defeat of Real Madrid.

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 last night's success, Isabele declared: "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!"
