David Silva has been an important part of the Manchester City squad for the past few years and he thinks that it’s the right time for his side to go for the Champions League trophy as they are finally experienced enough.
The Spaniard said that he “prays every night that he will win the Champions League as a Manchester City player” and this season seems to be the right one for this kind of achievement. Pep Guardiola’s side are in great form as they are on the top of the Premier League table and they are also likely to make it to the knock-out stage of the Champions League.
The former Valencia player is excited about this opportunity as he said, according to mancity.com: “It would be amazing. I pray every night to win the Champions League with City. Hopefully, we can win this year. We are playing really good football – beautiful football. We are playing well in all the lines. From the goalkeeper on, you can see it in every game.”
David Silva also spoke about his new position in the centre of the City midfield: “I think this is a good position for me. I love to play in the middle, to be in contact with the ball all the time. You have to be involved in the play all the time so I am enjoying playing in that position.”
He talked about his future as a Manchester City player as he insisted that he wants to stay: “We are still talking [about a new contract]. I hope I can sign soon as I would love to be playing for City in 10 years”
Pep Guardiola seems to be very happy with the performances of the midfielder: “I believe it is impossible to play well if the ball doesn’t pass in the middle. David is a master. He sits here and seems shy but he goes on the pitch with a huge personality.”
