David Silva reveals reasons behind his Manchester City absence

Davd Silva has been returning to Spain for personal reasons.

David Silva may miss more Manchester City games in the coming weeks as details emerge about the personal issues that have led to his absences of late.

The Spaniard, who has been exceptional this season, released a statement earlier this week revealing that his newborn son, Mateo, had been born "extremely" prematurely and was "fighting every day" in a Valencia hospital. After the match, City manager Pep Guardiola said Silva would be free to set his own schedule to deal with his family situation.

"Family is most important".

"We are very happy David is back, we don't know how long but he made another exhibition - he's essential, he showed how important he is for us", the City boss told a news conference.

His teammates are supportive of Silva as he goes through a hard personal period.

But Carrick, a father of two, has adopted a welcome change of tone and took to social media to send a message of support to the Silva family. We are here supporting him. "Immersed himself in the city, never complains, always plays and performs brilliantly".
