West Ham United midfielder Cheik Kouyate has published a series of tweets apologising for the incident that left Manchester City's David Silva writhing in agony during Sunday's clash with Manchester City.

The diminutive Spanish international was left rolling around on the floor in agony after he collided with Kouyate during Sunday's match, which the hosts won 2-0.

The Senegal international was accused by Sky Sports pundits Glenn Hoddle and Niall Quinn of all people) of deliberately attempting to injure Silva - claims that have been dismissed by representatives of both clubs since.

However Kouyate still felt it necessary to apologise to Silva for the challenge, which saw him stretchered off the pitch on Sunday.
