He is currently awaiting the outcome of the charge for improper conduct, but Silva insists he did not act in an aggressive or disrespectful manner towards the officials.

“I didn’t receive the answer yet,” he said.

“Of course, what they say to me or what they did, I’m here to respect. I ask them and now I’m waiting.

“In that moment I wasn’t happy, first of all with ourselves and with some decisions, also.

“But I never was aggressive, never disrespectful with the referee.

“I didn’t use abusive words or something like that and in that moment I wasn’t happy with the two decisions. I was clear with what I said to the referee and to the assistant about the situation.”
