The Citizens will host Shakhtar Donetsk in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, and Pep has spoken of “El Mago’s” skills
One day before the Manchester City-Shakhtar Donetsk match in the UEFA Champions League, Pep Guardiola has taken his time to praise David Silva.
The Spanish midfielder was key to the 2-1 win over German Bundesliga club Hoffenheim, scoring the winning goal.
And he has scored twice in the last three UCL matches.
“[David Silva] was always a problem to play against,” Pep told the press as reported by the club’s own website.
“He is one of the most incredible players playing in the pocket, which the space in between players. He moves in those spaces.”
“Few players can do it, and he is a master at that. He is enjoying it a lot. The fact he has played for so long in Premier League says everything,” he added.
“I love being alongside him every day.”
