Former Manchester City midfielder David Silva is considered a club legend at the Etihad and in fact, has a statue of himself just outside the stadium of the English Premier League club. The former Spain international midfielder had a glorious career at the Etihad Stadium, winning a couple of titles and being a part of the City side that started the dominance in the Premier League under manager Pep Guardiola after the Spanish manager took over the club back in the summer of 2016.

Guardiola is still the manager of the club and is still helping them become serious title contenders both domestically and in Europe. The Cityzens are the current English Premier League champions and reached the final of the UEFA Champions League last season but they were unfortunately beaten by a more spirited Chelsea side managed by Thomas Tuchel.

Silva has now revealed a couple of things about his stay at the club and how Guardiola often motivated his players to become better. Speaking in the recent interview, Silva revealed that when Guardiola first came to City, he had already mapped out his plan and started working to achieve that plan right from the very first day he resumed work at the club.

He said that Guardiola is a manager who loves to win and really hates to lose, which made his appointment by City a necessary one. Silva also added that Guardiola's methods of management are very modern and that he thinks a lot about different tactics and how they can improve the overall performance of the team.

The midfielder, who now plays in the Spanish LA Liga for Real Sociedad, added that his tune at City is always a memorable one and he will always cherish the fact that he played for the Manchester outfit.
