David Silva is a Spain international football player who currently features for the English and European giants Manchester City. He plays as an attacking midfielder or a winger and is rated as a world class player.

The most noteworthy point of his football is his versatility. He can play on the right or on he left and can even play in the hole behind the striker. He has also played as a striker in his time at Valencia.

Silva is a graduate of the famoud Valencia academy although he did not make the cut into the first team directly. Instead he was loaned out to little known SD Eibar at the start of the 2004-2005 season where he made 35 league appearances and scored 5 goals.

Next season, that is the 2005-2006 season, Silva was loaned out again, this time to Celta de Vigo and it was in Galicia that Silva finally blossomed and exhibited his massive class and quality. He could only score just 4 goals in 31 matches for Celta but he impressed everyone who cared to watch him and the very next season he was recalled to Valencia.

Silva had since been a regular at the Mestalla so much so that he even replaced Pablo Aimar at the club, thereby attesting that he possesses mature head on young shoulders. Villa signed a seven-year contract with Valencia in the summer of 2007 and in the summer of 2010 he was sold to Manchester City.

Silva was hugely impressive in his debut season at Eastlands, winning the FA Cup in 2011, and then in 2011-12 he was instrumental in the Citizens’ Premier League triumph.

Silva is also a regular member of the Spanish national side and made his debut against Romania in June 2006. He has since won Euro 2008, 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012.

    Greetings from Malaysia, my name is Prema from Malaysia and I love to watch football. Well my favourite team is Liverpool, AC Milan, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. I like the way David Silva played yesterday at the Community Shield. He is really a good player with full of skills and I love the way he plays as a stiker. I am sad that Manchester City did not win the Community Shield but I happy that did work hard and wish them all the best for coming EPL season that start next Sunday and qualify for Champion League as well. Manchester City you have a great squad and a great manager, so keep up the good work and win. I have confident that this team will do well since you have a few new signing players. Stay strong and do your best. David Silva you are so cute and do your best and I have confident that you can score more goals. All the best to you and your team. Take Care & God Bless You David, your biggest fan from Malaysia.
