The Spanish Court has found former Manchester City midfielder David Silva guilty of assaulting a woman during a brawl which took place earlier this year. Reportedly, Silva grabbed the arm of the woman to push her aside which caused her to fall to the ground, and the court fined him for€1,080 after he admitted being guilty of the allegations.
Notably, the incident occurred on June 19 during the Carnaval celebration in the Canary Islands where a fight broke out between a group of people and Silva and his companions. Reportedly, the victim suffered multiple injuries, including post-traumatic cervical pain and contusion on the left elbow. She also told the court that she suffered lacerations on the second finger of her left hand, and lacerations on both knees and on both legs.
Reports have further claimed that Silva's brother, Fernando Antonio Jimenez Silva was alleged to have struck another man in the face. The third person with David Silva reportedly threw a stone at a man which caused a wound that required surgery. Reportedly, he also threatened a man with a knife and was sentenced to eight months in prison.
The celebrated footballer recently had his stature unveiled at the Etihad Stadium after playing 436 times for Manchester City while winning 11 major trophies. As quoted in The Metro, David Silva hailed the City manager Pep Guardiola for doing an incredible job with the club and guiding the city to some historic titles.
"It's generations, isn't it? We were the first set who were tasked with trying to change the situations in the club. We all are aware how great Pep is and what an incredible job he has done with the club. The players have also reacted very well. They adapted very well," he was quoted. The veteran further applauded Erling Haaland for scoring so many goals and claimed that the club is winning so many leagues which is 'a great sign.'
