Former Manchester City attacking midfielder David Silva was fined by a Spanish court on Thursday, September 21 for attacking and injuring a woman.
Silva, who was charged alongside a group of men, was found guilty of injuring the lady during a fight that broke out on June 19 in the Canary Islands.
According to the court documents, the one-time world cup winner grabbed a lady, causing her to fall to the ground.
The intensity at which the woman fell on the ground made her pick up bodily injuries that required medical treatment. She suffered injuries that included abrasions, and bruises.
Silva was slapped with a $1,066 (Approximately Ksh129,000) fine for hurting the woman.
Besides David, the court did not let the other two men walk scott free. One of them was fined and sentenced to serve an eight-month prison term while the other was just fined.
Silva was one of Manchester City’s best creative midfielders during their trophy laden decade.
The 36-year-old helped the Citizens lift a number of trophies including four English Premier League and Five league cup titles.
At international level, he made his debut for the Spanish national team in 2006 and went on to bag a couple of trophies including the 2010 FIFA World Cup title.
His formidable partnership at the heart of Spain’s midfield alongside the former Barcelona duo of Xavi Hernandes and Andreas Iniesta was also crucial in the country’s 2008 and 2012 UEFA Euro tournament triumph.
