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.


David Silva reveals his joy under Pep Guardiola and believes Manchester City's early season form is as a result of the freedom the Catalan guarantees the team.

Silva has been playing in a slightly deeper role since Guardiola replaced Manuel Pellegrini as the coach of Manchester City, with the team having won 10, drawn one and lost one of their 12 competitive matches this season.

David Silva Happy with New Role under Pep Guardiola

Manchester City midfielder David Silva claims that he is enjoying life in the Guardiola, as the Spaniard is allowing him more freedom on the ball.

Silva appears back to his best this campaign and he has already contributed tremendously to the club’s impressive start to the campaign. City only recently suffered their first defeat of the season and it came after six consecutive wins. The blip against Tottenham is unlikely to affect the confidence, which has been at skyhigh according to Silva. Guardiola came in as the replacement for Manuel Pellegrini in the summer and the former Barcelona manager was expected to do some great things at the club.

David Silva is confident Manchester City is improving under Guardiola

Since taking over Manchester City, Pep Guardiola has guided the Premier League club to 3 successive league matches as well as a number of other friendly games as well as International Champions Cup encounters.

It’s been around 8 months since Guardiola arrived to the Etihad Stadium and this isn’t a significantly long period of time for a manager to make a truly impact in any club but it seems like Pep Guardiola has managed to do it as David Silva has felt the effect that the Spanish coach has made so far.

Pep Guardiola managed to escape a major embarrassment

Pep Guardiola managed to escape a major embarrassment in his first ever Premier League game, as Manchester City secured a late 2-1 win over Sunderland on Saturday.


Pep Guardiola is giving the youths a chance to show him what they have got ahead of the new season which promises a lot of competition already.

However, the Spanish manager is taking established play makers in Sergio Aguero and David Silva along to the trip to China.

Twelve top young players would be joining in the team that will move to China after their time in Germany. Top stars that were yet to resume for training didn’t feature in the game against German Champions Bayern Munich but they are set to begin their preparations on tour and might feature when City play United in the International Champions Cup.


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.”

Manuel Pellegrini wants to stay more in Premier League

Manuel Pellegrini has revealed his desire to stay in the Premier League even after leaving Manchester City in the summer.

The Chilean will make way for Pep Guardiola but he leaves City on a high after having won a title in two of his three seasons at the club.


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 injuries Problem Continues

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.
