Edin Dzeko rates David Silva as Best Player He Has Played with

Former Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko has branded David Silva as the best player he has ever played with.

Edin Dzeko was the teammate of Silva for a couple of years and he got to experience the full quality of the Spaniard from close up. After his move from Valencia back in 2009 for just £ 24 million, Silva has been one of the best players in English football. Of late, he may have struggled with injuries and this limited his impact on the game, but his talent is obvious for everyone to witness.

At the Spanish national team level, he may have been overshadowed by the likes of Andres Iniesta but it is largely as a result of the latter playing for Barcelona. After a couple of years at Manchester City, Dzeko has moved to Italian Serie A with Roma.

While he struggled for consistency and goals at Manchester City, he has been a player transformed this season. Dzeko has 10 goals in the league and is the top scorer alongside Icardi of Inter Milan. This form has been a major factor in Roma being one of the few challengers for Juventus, who are fast transforming into the perennial champions in the Italian Serie A.

Only four points separate Roma from Juventus and the latter has every reason to be worried. "This is a difficult choice as I’ve played with so many great players.I think I would have to go with David Silva, he does amazing things with the ball and they don’t call him the Little Magician for nothing.This guy was brilliant with his feet, he could take any ball you gave him, control it, and pass it on. All of us were always amazed by his ability and technique. He is definitely the best I’ve played with,” said Dzeko.
