David Silva Expects A Lot Of Success from Guardiola Next Season

Manchester City star David Silva reckons that manager Pep Guardiola will be much more successful next season.

The introduction to English football has been extremely tough for the Spaniard, but City will be able to finish in the top four if they win the last two matches. This would be the only consolation for the team, which would be ending up without any major trophies for the season. This is the first time Guardiola finishes a campaign without any major trophies since he started his managerial reign almost a decade ago at Barcelona. The former Barcelona midfielder has been immensely successful in both his playing days and as a manager.

Yet, he has found his football extremely tough with its ability to spring a surprise at any stage. The second half of the season has seen City become more consistent, while Guardiola has also resisted the lure to make several changes to his starting line-up just as he did throughout his managerial career.

Silva has been a major contributing factor in helping the club win back-to-back league matches. The 5-0 win over Crystal Palace has been followed by a 2-1 win over Leicester City with a Silva scoring the opening goal in both these games.

The absence of the Spaniard for key parts of the campaign has also been cited as a crucial factor in City’s disappointing season."When you don't win trophies, you feel a little bit disappointed.We are here to win trophies. But it's Pep Guardiola's first season and he is changing some ideas of football and the way of play.It suits us well. We are doing something for the near future and I think we are achieving it little by little.What makes him so special is the fact that he gives you all the keys to win the next game,” said Silva.
