We all know by now, David Silva (34) will leave Manchester City at the end of the season. The great architect of the Manchester City victory against Newcastle this Wednesday (5-0), had the good surprise to hear his coach pay tribute to him. Asked at the end of the match at the microphone of BT Sport, the Spanish technician mentioned the fact that he “had never seen a player like him. He is incredible, he is a legend a huge player in small spaces”.
Author of two assists and a sumptuous free kick goal, the little 1,70m elf scored five goals for ten assists in 34 games played in all competitions this season.
More generally, the Valencia-trained player will have participated in 430 matches in the Skyblues jersey and will have scored 76 goals for 139 assists. Another player with extraordinary technique that will certainly be missed by Pep Guardiola and the world of football.
