Silva out for ‘personal’ reasons

Manchester City have confirmed that Spain international David Silva will be out indefinitely due to ‘personal’ reasons.

Silva has not appeared for City since their 4-0 win against Bournemouth before Christmas, and Pep Guardiola explained the issue would keep out the midfielder until he was ‘ready’ to come back.

“I don’t know,” the Coach told Manchester Evening News when asked about the 31-year-old’s return.

“When he is ready, he will come back. But his personal life is always more important than any other situation.

“So, when he comes back it’s because he’s ready, welcome. That is what we have to do.”
