In the Blues’ 2-0 loss to Tottenham last month, the 38-year-old Thiago Silva had a knee injury that required up to six weeks of recovery.
Throughout his absence, Silva has continued to be a noticeable presence at Stamford Bridge, cheering on his teammates from the stands.
He has also worked hard at home while sitting on the sidelines.
Isabelle, the center back’s wife, posted a video of her husband climbing a ladder at home.
When Silva realized he was being recorded, he laughed. He was working on the house while wearing a puffer jacket.
“He stays at home and the insect from “bob the builder” strikes,” Isabelle wrote in Portuguese.
Although Silva’s wife is his biggest supporter, she has never been afraid to criticize the players and coaches on the Chelsea club.
Recently, she supported a tweet that called Graham Potter a “deadbeat coach.”
While it was alleged that she called struggling forward Timo Werner a “verme” previous season, which is Portuguese for “maggot.”
Thiago Silva and Isabelle were married in 2015, and the two of them have two kids, Isago and Iago.
The family relocated to London in 2020 following his signing to Chelsea.
Since joining the Blues, he has gone on to win the Champions League, Uefa Super Club, and Fifa Club World Cup.
