The Manchester City footballer has announced today that the 2019-2020 season will be his last campaign with the Citizens.

David Silva has been playing for Manchester City since 2010, but now he has announced this will be his last season at the club.

But before he leaves, he wants to make sure somebody will step up to take his place, and he has tipped Phil Foden to fill his shoes.

“I’m sure he’s going to be a fantastic player. He’s a very nice man and he will be a good replacement for me,” Silva told Four Four Two.

“Apart from his natural skills, he’s a very competitive person.”

“He always wants to win and that makes a very good footballer,” he said.

“When you’re young, you always ask people with experience.”

“I’ve given him lots of advice, like how to move on the pitch,” he commented.

“He’s taken the information in and he’s getting better day by day.”

“He reminds me of myself when I was young — especially how he is as a person,” he continued.

“He’s very quiet, but always there, competing. He hates losing.”

“The best advice I can give him is to always stay calm. Whatever happens in football, the highs, and lows, always keep calm,” Silva concluded.
