Meanwhile, Manchester City announced that a statue will be built at the Etihad Stadium in honor of Silva, and a mosaic was dedicated to him by the club’s academy, reflecting his contribution to the 6-1 win over United in 2011.
“David Silva is a transformative player; a silent leader who has acted quietly and deliberately and inspired everyone around him, from the youngest player in the academy to his teammates for the past 10 years,” said the president of the club, Khaldoon Al Mubarak.
He added: “He has left a stamp on the team, on this club, on their history and even on the Premier League as a whole. In doing so, he has been central to the beautiful philosophy of football seen today. He was the beginning. “.
“As with Vincent (Kompany) before him, the statue of David will act as a lasting reminder of the wonderful moments he provided us, not just as an incredible footballer, but as an inspiring ambassador who represented this soccer club with great dignity at all times “, closed the manager.
Silva’s last appearance in the City jersey came as a substitute in a disappointing 3-1 loss to Lyon, in which Pep Guardiola’s side were eliminated from the Champions League in the quarter-finals for the third consecutive season. It was the Spaniard’s 436th game at the club, leaving him 10th on the all-time list alongside Willie Donachie.
