- The new Chelsea centre-back failed to control a simple pass which led to West Brom’s second goal.
- He acknowledges his mistake but urges everyone to get over this and move on.
- Silva appreciates the support of his new club and pledges to give it all for the Blues on the pitch.
“There are days when unfortunately hard work doesn’t pay off the way we expected,” Thiago Silva’s message on his Instagram page reads.
“I am upset, but I take responsibility for the mistake I made, as I always did. As difficult as it may be, we have to get over this and move on.
“I want to thank my teammates and the entire staff for their continuous support since I joined Chelsea FC. I am really grateful of that support.
“I promise to all of you that I will give everything I have on the pitch, putting all my energy and commitment into the games to come.”
A 3-3 draw against West Bromwich was not the Premier League debut Thiago Silva would’ve wanted. Having put on a captain’s armband, the 36-year-old made an uncharacteristic gift to Callum Robinson to make it 2-0.
Apart from that blunder, though, Thiago Silva did not look like a player out of his depth – at least, that’s what Frank Lampard believes as he said that the Brazilian was pretty much faultless during the time he spent on the field.
