Kai Havertz and Thiago Silva both left emotional after Chelsea announcement last night
Chelsea defender Thiago Silva and former teammate Kai Havertz were both visibly moved by Mason Mount’s farewell video to the supporters. Both players left crying emojis as comments on Instagram, expressing their emotions as Mount’s time at Stamford Bridge comes to an end.
It is widely anticipated that Mount will soon be announced as a new player for Manchester United, following a significant breakdown in his relationship with the Chelsea hierarchy. Despite being offered multiple contract options to stay, Mount made the decision to seek a move elsewhere.
Several top clubs expressed interest in signing Mount, given his impressive performances at the highest level in recent seasons. While it was initially reported that Liverpool was his preferred destination, he will be joining Erik ten Hag’s team next season.
In an attempt to connect with the fans and show his emotions, Mount uploaded a video directly addressing them. This prompted various players, including Silva and Havertz, to leave comments expressing their own emotions.
Havertz, having recently made the move across London to Arsenal, knows firsthand what it feels like to bid farewell to Chelsea. While he chose a more conventional approach to thank the fans, some supporters remained skeptical of Mount’s attempts to defend himself. Observations were made about the disparity between his appearance in the video and a recent picture at his new club, casting doubt on his authenticity.
It remains to be seen how fans will ultimately perceive Mount’s departure and his farewell message.
