The star of Chelsea, Thiago Silva, has now taken to social media to talk about how one player that the team sold during the most recent summer transfer window is missing from his team.
He may have been thinking back to his better days at Stamford Bridge when he headed to Instagram to wish former Blue Mason Mount a happy birthday.
Being a part of the team that lost to Middlesbrough in the first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final earlier this week probably marked the lowest point of Silva’s stay at the club.
The veteran quickly expressed regret to the supporters, which prevented a situation from getting out of control on the away end.
He’s added the Champions League to his collection of personal trophies in a matter of years since joining Chelsea, an accomplishment that seemed unlikely to come his way during his remarkable career.
Mount was one of the players who was crucial to the run in 2021, but he left the team just two years later.

The England international turned 25 yesterday, and several Chelsea players sent him well wishes on his birthday.
Among them was Silva, who posted it on his Instagram story along with a note to his former coworker.
“Happy Birthday, bro! Miss you,”
More than most players, Mount had a difficult 2023 playing for two struggling teams, Manchester United and Chelsea.
To anyone who watched him in his peak at Stamford Bridge, it would have been unthinkable that he actually finished the year without scoring a goal.
Although he will need to wait a few more months to make his Stamford Bridge debut as an opponent again, Mount is almost ready to make his injury return for his present team.
