David Silva has been fined the sum of nine hundrend and forty-two pounds after he was involve in a fight.

Real Sociedad midfielder David Silva has been fined for rough-handling a woman in a fight at a carnival.

David Silva has been ordered to pay a €1,080 (£942) fine for grabbing a young woman during a brawl at a carnival in the Canary Islands.

The incident took place at the Maspalomas Carnival in Gran Canaria back on June 19 which also involved the former Manchester City star’s brother Fernando Antonio Jimenez Silva and an unnamed third individual.

According to the mirror, it was stated that Silva had the ‘intention of undermining the physical integrity’ of the victim and ‘roughly grabbed her arm to move her away, causing her to fall to the ground.’

The young woman stated to have suffered post-traumatic cervical pain, a bruise to her left elbow as well as bruises and grazes to her knees and a finger on her left hand.

She required medical assistance on the scene ‘without requiring subsequent medical treatment.’

It is understood that the case never reached trial as all defendants admitted their part in the incident.

The Real Sociedad midfielder acknowledged the facts by the Public Prosecutor’s Office and was sentenced to a fine of €1,080 (£942) ‘at a rate of 12 euros per day during three months’.

According to the Spanish publication, this conclusion was reached as the footballer was the ‘perpetrator responsible for a minor crime of injuries, with subsidiary personal liability in case of non-payment of one day of deprivation of liberty for every two daily instalments not paid,’ said the judge.

Silva has been told to compensate the young woman with €520 – €280 of that amount due to injuries suffered and the other €240 due to the material damage caused as a result of the incident.

Silva is regarded as one of Manchester City’s greatest ever players after a legendary decade spent at the Etihad Stadium where he won four Premier League titles.

The 36-year-old left Manchester City in 2020 to join LaLiga side Real Sociedad.

Real Sociedad were approached but refused to comment.
