Pellegrini wary of Silva getting injured with Spain

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.

The Spanish national football has a few upcoming friendly matches as they have to face off with: Italy, Romania, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Korea Republic. The first friendly encounter will kick off on March 24 as Spain travels to Italy.

Spain’s Vicente del Bosque has already announced his squad for the approaching friendlies against Italy and Romania. The 65 year old manager included Manchester City’s David Silva in his squad for these games and Manuel Pellegrini is hoping that his Spanish star player avoids getting injured like he has already done in the past when playing for his national team.

Manchester City’s Manuel Pellegrini spoke about David Silva’s condition as he said: "The injury David returned with from the Spanish squad is the same one he has today. He has never recovered 100 per cent but I cannot have the final decision. It is up to David and the doctor to decide if he can play. It is difficult because a player always wants to play for his country. But I am sure Vicente del Bosque will know if it is good for David to play because they will also need him to be at his best for the Euros."

Manuel Pellegrini is aware that there is almost nothing that he can do to prevent David Silva from playing with his national side but Pellegrini is hoping that Vicente del Bosque will take caution with Silva and try to avoid getting him injured or suffer any kind of physical worries.
