CHELSEA fans have urged Thiago Silva to get his priorities in order after he expressed his regret at missing out on the Champions League.
The veteran 38-year-old defender mentioned the official Champions League account on Twitter and posted a crying emoji to show how much he misses the competition when it started yesterday.
Silva played in the Champions League 106 times and won it once with Chelsea in 2021.
But the club missed out on repeating this season after finishing 11th in the Premier League last season.
This time Chelsea were able to build on their poor form from last season and only win one of their five Premier League games so far.
And fans reacting to Thiago Silva’s tweet said he needed to look at correcting his form before they could dream of playing in the Champions League again.
One fan tweeted: “We’re in for a relegation battle for King.”
While another fan wrote: “Thiago Silva delete that!”
A third sarcastically said: “Project 2030” as he suggested Chelsea would be taking part in the competition next time.
Apparently in response to the trolling, Silva has now pinned the tweet.

It was another summer of change at Chelsea as they signed 12 players and sold, loaned or released 23.
Their transfer spending has also exceeded £1 billion since owner Todd Boehly took over the club in May last year.
Coach Mauricio Pochettino lamented his club’s injuries following their 0-0 draw with Bourenmouth this weekend.
He said after the game: “If the whole squad is fit we can keep up, but now we don’t have the whole squad available.”
“What can we do? For me there is nothing to say… the fans can do that. We had 12 injured this weekend: I will cry, I will complain, to who? I have to accept that.”
Chelsea will look to get back to winning ways next Sunday against Aston Villa.
