Sevilla striker Andre Silva denies 'simulating' injury

Sevilla striker Andre Silva has denied faking injury.

The on-loan AC Milan forward hasn't played since March amid claims he is exaggerating his problem.

But he told A Bola: “I'm not simulating an injury, I've been receiving treatment.

“My conscience is clear; I've wanted to play and the problem for me is that as time has passed, the pain has worsened.

“Maybe this hasn't been handled in the best way and I should've taken a break in December to sort it, but Sevilla needed me and I wanted to play."
