They danced, hopped, and roared with joy through a toy mega-phone.

The wife and family Thiago Silvas cheered the Brazilian's entry into the finals with Chelsea in the Champions League on Wednesday evening in their house in front of the television - and sent a special greeting to Timo Werner via Instagram.

"Very good!

That's how I want to see it!

You know how to score goals.

You are the best my friend!

Love you! “, Isabelle Silva, the wife of the defense chief, called into her smartphone.

Werner scored the 1-0 against Real Madrid in the 28th minute of the semi-finals at Stamford Bridge, while Mason Mount (85th) made the final score with the second goal. In the first leg (1: 1) Werner had missed a big chance and was therefore verbally abused by Silva's wife, she called him "worm". Thiago immediately apologized to Werner. Everyone loves each other now - football is fast moving.

In the first leg he was the idiot, said Werner self-critically.

“Of course, I'm all the more happy that I made the women of my teammates happy.” The striker was already looking forward to the final against Manchester City on May 29 in Istanbul.

“Hopefully we and I will succeed in celebrating again.

That's the most important thing: that our women and our fans are satisfied. "

Praise from Kroos


Except for his teammate Mateo Kovacic, none of the team have reached the Champions League final.

“We are a very, very young team,” says Werner.

"Many dreamed of doing that themselves when they were children and watched the TV."

In many ways it was a particular success, shaped by four Germans: Werner, Kai Havertz, Antonio Rüdiger and Thomas Tuchel.

Havertz stood out with a lot of enthusiasm, prepared Werner's goal and should have scored one himself, Real was still quite well served with the 0: 2.

Rüdiger is one reason for Chelsea's defensive strength.

And Tuchel has managed to move into the final of the world's most important club competition with two teams for two seasons in a row.

No coach had ever succeeded in doing this.

It is the first time that Chelsea have played in the final since 2012, when the Londoners beat FC Bayern in Munich.

"Chelsea won well," said Reals Toni Kroos after the semi-finals this week.

Tuchel took over the team on January 26th in ninth place in the Premier League, 99 days later he reached the grand final and is fourth with Chelsea.

In addition, his team can also win the FA Cup, on May 15th it will play in the final against Leicester City.

Tuchel's contract is valid until the summer of 2022. There are currently many indications that Chelsea will make use of the agreed option to extend the contract.

It works with the 47-year-old.


The coach, who is considered difficult after his problems at Borussia Dortmund, proves once again what extraordinary skills he has abroad.

That he has developed into an international top coach.

“I'm very proud,” said Tuchel.

“I always felt hungry.

All eleven players suffered to defend it.

That was a great team effort. "

Impressive turnaround

Around a month after leaving PSG, Tuchel took over as Frank Lampard's successor in London.

The win against Real was under him Chelsea's 18th competitive game without conceding a goal.

In the Champions League, the opponents met only four times against the Londoners.

Werner and Rüdiger had a hard time under Lampard - they are important under Tuchel.

He has strengthened Rüdiger, and Werner again manages to use his enormous speed effectively.

"I felt great support from day one," said Tuchel.

"The sacrifices I personally had to make not to see my family - were worth it." He feels part of the cabin.

His job is to provide knowledge and guidance.

“It doesn't feel like it's just me.

I do my part.

But the players achieve the goals. "

In the final he now meets Pep Guardiola.

Both appreciate each other very much.

Their meeting in Munich is legendary in the football scene when they reenacted a tactic in a restaurant with salt and pepper shakers.

"I'm looking forward to it, it will be a very classic 50:50 game," said Tuchel.

In the semi-finals of the FA Cup, Chelsea just beat City 1-0.

Tuchel would be the third German coach in a row to win the premier class: In 2019 Jürgen Klopp succeeded with FC Liverpool, in 2020 Hans-Dieter "Hansi" Flick with Bayern.

The final pairing of the Champions League also has an impact on the preparation of the German national team for the European Championship.

Joachim Löw has to do without Werner, Havertz, Rüdiger and Manchester’s Ilkay Gündogan in the first phase of the training camp before the European Championships in Austria.

The 61-year-old wants to name the squad for his last tournament as national coach on May 19.

From May 25th to June 6th, the national team is preparing for the trans-European EM in Seefeld.

The German quartet from England should get at least two days off after the final of the premier class before they will probably join the team on June 1st in Tyrol.

On June 2nd, Löw's team will test against Denmark in Innsbruck.

The EM dress rehearsal will take place on June 7th in Düsseldorf against Latvia.

“It is important that we then be together for 14 days at a time.

That will help us, ”said Löw recently.

When preparing for the desolate World Cup in Russia three years ago, Kroos missed a large part of the preparation as the Champions League winner.

This time he can be there from the start.

The German team will start the European Championship on June 15 against world champions France.

Other group opponents also in Munich are defending champions Portugal (June 19) and Hungary (June 23).

The Germans don't want to think that far at Chelsea at the moment. “The job is not over yet,” emphasized Tuchel. “We will go to Istanbul with confidence and positive energy. And with the clear goal: to win. ”Thiago Silva's emotional wife and Timo Werner hope that after their reconciliation they will be able to celebrate again very big.
