Chelsea star Thiago Silva responds to questions over future after crying in ‘Last Dance’ at Wembley

Thiago Silva has dropped a huge hint over his Chelsea future following more FA Cup heartbreak at Wembley this weekend.

The 39-year-old broke down in tears following the Blues’ FA Cup semi-final defeat to holders Manchester City on Saturday.

After joining the club in 2020, Brazilian Silva has lost an FA Cup final to Leicester City at Wembley, before losing three times to Liverpool at the national stadium.

With his contract expiring this summer, the veteran feasibly had one final chance to end his wait for a domestic trophy in England.

However, Bernardo Silva’s 84th-minute strike punished a wasteful Chelsea to all-but end his namesake’s hopes of glory under the arch.

The former AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain defender has now hinted that his time in SW6 now looks to be coming to an end.

“You are going to know in the coming days,” a dejected Silva revealed post-match about his future.

“I don’t want to say anything now after a defeat.

“I’m sad about the result, but sooner or later the news will come out.

“I do have a decision made in my mind, but it’s not the moment to share it.

“It’s not an individual sport, but my four years here were very good. Not that I didn’t believe in myself, but with my age and the intensity of this league, it’s rare to see players in a high level at 39.

“I don’t like to talk about me, but you can see this. In the semi-final I was ready to play the extra-time! I can see I still have some years in me to keep enjoying football.”

The 39-year-old also wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter in response to the late defeat: “It is difficult to describe in words what I feel now.

“We are very sorry we didn’t make it, we left everything on the pitch. Proud of this group. Thanks to all of you for never leaving us.”

Silva’s wife also dropped a huge hint that the ex-Brazil captain will leave Chelsea this summer on social media.

His partner, Belle, labelled the FA Cup defeat to City his ‘last dance’ after sharing a photo of herself holding a Chelsea scarf at Wembley.
