De Bruyne laughs off clash with Man City captain Silva: Just like with the wife!

Kevin de Bruyne insists there's no problems with Manchester City teammate David Silva.

The Belgian star was caught by cameras in a heated discussion with Silva as they left the field at half-time in the 2-1 win over Napoli.

But De Bruyne says the verbals were nothing worse than a domestic with the missus!

He said: “We just had a little discussion. A minute later, that's forgotten. I have those discussions sometimes with my wife too. You too, I suppose.

“Sometimes it's needed. Not everything is always positive. But this was something small. I wanted to ask something, but I wasn't allowed to.

“But, as I said, it's nothing to make a big deal out of it. It happens sometimes."

He explained: “Some people often say or see that I'm frustrated, but that wasn't the case. I was just a bit annoyed. And for a minute I lost myself.

“One minute and it's done. And I don't mind. At the highest level a discussion can be good sometimes. To get everyone on their toes again."
