John Dillion apologies for his ‘offensive’ David Silva comments

Football journalist John Dillon has apologised for his ‘offensive’ comments regarding David Silva made on Talk Sport.

Dillon accused Manchester City of diverting public attention away from recent leaks by using Silva’s newborn son.

The Spaniard’s child, Mateo, was born prematurely causing him and his family a traumatic time.

Last week, Manchester City put David Silva up for interview to discuss the ordeal he went through with his son.

When speaking on Talk Sport, Dillon made claims that the club used Silva’s situation to deflect away from the recent negative press.

The football writer received huge backlash for the comments and has since apologised.
