David Silva Admits Manchester City Success Has Helped Him In A Personal Scale

Manchester City midfielder David Silva has admitted that the club’s Premier League glory has helped him deal with the premature birth of his son earlier in December. The Citizens were handed the league crown after their goalless draw against Huddersfield Town last weekend and Silva has highlighted that he is ‘so happy’ to have won the title alongside the ever improving health of his son, Mateo.

He told Sky Sports News: “Yeah this is a big one for me, because what happened with my son. I am so happy because he is getting better and we got the title. I can't ask for more. Because the team were playing so well, that helped me. I feel okay I feel good. I have to travel to Spain and back to England, it was a tough time for me but you know we are the champions.”

Silva has experienced one of his best campaigns with the Mancunian outfit to date and this has seen him contribute 20 league goals for only the second time in a Premier League season. Despite this, his future could be under consideration beyond the summer of 2020. Silva will have turned 34 by the time the 2019/2020 season concludes and they have been talks of him returning to Gran Canaria with Las Palmas, though they are currently plying their trade in the Spanish second tier.

Manchester City recently picked up a 3-1 triumph over Brighton & Hove Albion which saw them break the record for the most goals, points, and wins in a single Premier League campaign and they now have the possibility of reaching the 100-point mark when they travel to the South Coast for the curtain closer against Southampton. The Saints cemented a key win over Swansea in midweek and only a 10-point would see them relegated this weekend.
