The Spain coach, Vicente Del Bosque, has refused to respond to reported accusations from David Silva that he has frozen the midfielder out of his plans.

Manchester City star Silva, 25, has been in fine form in the Premier League so far this season but went public with his unhappiness last month in an interview with the AS newspaper.

He said that he did not feel the support of Del Bosque and claimed he had been made the scapegoat following Spain's surprise defeat to Switzerland in the opening game of the 2010 World Cup finals.

Speaking in Prague ahead of Spain's Euro 2012 qualifier against the Czech Republic on Friday night, Del Bosque said: "I have to talk to David Silva.

"He said something at the time that he considered his treatment unfair but he has not said anything to me.

"Therefore I can't say anything."

Spain have a 100 per cent record in Group I so far with six wins out of six and beat the Czechs 2-1 in the reverse fixture.
