Kevin De Bruyne likens row with David Silva to a spat with his wife

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne laughs off his row with David Silva after City's win over Napoli and likens it to an argument with his wife.

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has laughed off his row with teammate David Silva during City's win over Napoli by likening it to an argument with his wife.

De Bruyne and Silva clashed after the final whistle as the former looked to raise a point to the fourth official - De Bruyne was stopped by Silva before demanding that the Spaniard let him talk.

City continued their unbeaten record in this season's Champions League group stages with a 2-1 win over their Italian opponents which took Pep Guardiola's side three points clear at the top of Group F.

"We just had a little discussion. A minute later, that's forgotten. I have those discussions with my wife too. You too, I suppose. Sometimes it's needed," De Bruyne told The Telegraph.

"Not everything is always positive. But this was something small. I wanted to ask something [to the fourth official] but I wasn't allowed to. But as I said, it's nothing to make a big deal out of. It happens sometimes."

Manchester City face Burnley at the Etihad on Saturday and are in EFL Cup action against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Tuesday.
