Mario Balotelli has described his former team mate at Manchester City, David Silva, as “the slow Messi.”
The Frenchman got behind Spain at the current Euro 2016 saying that Silva is one of the reasons that no-one should write them off winning Euro 2016.
Balotelli said he was a huge fan of the star player maker known as Merlin to City supporters. The Italy international was speaking ahead of the encounter between Spain and the Czech Republic at the Euro 2016 on Monday.
He also congratulated Silva was in line to join the elitist players who have capped 100 games for the national team. He said:
“He's the slow Messi! That says everything.”

Vincent Kompany is an absolute beast on the field for the Manchester City team. He’s not a force to be reckoned with and he has a very high value.
He’s a natural leader and he’ll be sure to have a job at the club, maybe at the boardroom level when his playing days are behind him. There’s no doubt that he has been one of Manchester City’s greatest captains.

David Silva’s struggles with injuries continued after Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed that the Spaniard will miss the next two or three weeks due to the latest injury.
Silva had to go from the 0-0 draw at Real Madrid a week ago due to a hamstring problem. The diagnosis has revealed a much more serious injury that will see the player spend more time on the sidelines. Silva is regarded as an influential player in the City squad ever since he came from Valencia in 2010. However, the last 24 months has been a period of trouble for the Spaniard.

Injury hit midfielder David Silva may not need a surgery, according to manager Manuel Pellegrini.
The Chilean manager was speaking ahead of the weekend’s game at West Brom. Manchester City could be once again without Silva in the centre of the park. Since his arrival from Valencia in 2010, the Spaniard has been one of the best players not just at the club but in the entire division. Such has been his ability to dominate games that City have relied upon him during their major titles successes in the last five years.

Manuel Pellegrini has revealed that midfielder David Silva has been going through a poor run of form largely because he has been playing through a pain barrier.
The former Valencia midfielder used to be one of the finest creator of chances for his team. Even though he has managed 10 assists and two goals in the league this season, it has been a campaign to forget for the 30-year-old. This has been down to a combination of frequent injuriesand being in and out of the team. The players recently returned to the starting line-up in the 4-0 win against Aston Villa.

David Silva is one of the main figures of Manchester City, the Spanish midfielder is considered to be as a very skillful player and he has helped out his team in this season by providing 10 assists and scoring 2 goals from the 22 league matches that he has played so far.
Back in October of 2015, when David Silva played at the international stage with Spain he sustained an ankle injury and this forced the Spanish midfielder on having to miss out from a number of matches for Manchester City during that period of time.

One of the primary reasons behind Manchester City’s inconsistent form in the 2015-16 season has been the absence of key players like David Silva.
The Spanish playmaker has been able to feature in only 16 league starts. This is in sharp contrast to the time when he was playing almost every game for the club since his £ 24 million move from Valencia in the 2010-11 season. Even though his goals and assist statistics have improved on a per game basis, his lack of minutes on the pitch has become a real problem for the club.

David Silva recently returned to the Manchester City starting line-up to provide a huge boost for manager Manuel Pellegrini.
The team’s inconsistent form this season has been attributed to the absence of Silva on a regular basis. The Spaniard has struggled with niggling injuries throughout the season. Another player in the team, Kevin De Bruyne, has managed to impress straightaway. Just when it seemed that the Belgian would form a great partnership and foil for Silva, they have not been able to pair them together due to the injuries to the latter.
