The injury status of Thiago Silva has been updated, and he has stated that he hopes to be back in time for Chelsea’s Champions League match against Real Madrid. He is now recovering from a knee injury and won’t be back in action until April, but he is progressing well.
On social media, Thiago Silva has been updating followers on his progress in recovering from a knee injury he incurred during Chelsea’s 2-0 loss to Tottenham last month. Concerns regarding the seriousness of the Brazilian defender’s injuries were heightened by the fact that he had to leave the field early.
Graham Potter, the coach of Chelsea, was dealt a serious blow when it was later revealed that Silva would be out for six weeks. Potter was already under fire.
Before to the injury, Potter had voiced his happiness at Silva’s contract extension, underlining the player’s value to the team both on and off the field.
Although if Chelsea’s chances of finishing in the top four this season are slim, they still stand a solid possibility of taking home the Champions League. As a result, there is optimism that Thiago Silva will be ready for their forthcoming match against Real Madrid in mid-April. The seasoned defender provided a progress report on his rehabilitation on Instagram as the game drew near.
Silva’s left knee, which looks to be wearing a rehabilitation device, is visible in the picture. The picture’s background features his wife Belle Silva, who is identified in the description as his physiotherapist in Portuguese.
Whilst it’s unclear if Thiago Silva can recuperate in time for the pivotal Champions League quarterfinal games, there is hope that he is making good progress and will be ready to participate. If he can return to play in time for these important fixtures, only time will tell.
