De Bruyne downplays argument with David Silva during Napoli game


Kevin De Bruyne has come out to place less significance on the argument between him and his Man City team-mate David Silva at half time in the UCL game against Napoli at the Etihad on Tuesday night.

De Bruyne was reportedly shouting ‘let me talk’ thrice at Silva as the Spaniard and Fernandinho attempted to separate the furious Belgian from the fourth official.

The Belgian midfielder attracted a card to his name for dissent before the interval and would have been in line for further punishments if he had engaged the officials in an argument.

De Bruyne was displeased with the interference of his team-mates and made his way down the tunnel. After the game, he disclosed that all had been sorted out and forgotten.

“No, I think we had a little discussion at the time, it happens,” De Bruyne told reporters. “There’s nothing wrong, after one minute it’s over.

“I think at home I also get into some arguments with my wife, I think it’s normal.

“It’s just what happens sometimes, you have a collision of words, there was nothing big about it.”

City went on to win 2:1 against a resilient Napoli, who undoubtedly gave them one of thier toughest challenges of the season so far.
