One of which asked: “If you could pay to watch one of you City team mates for the rest of your life who would it be and why?”

It was an easy answer for our centre-back, who said: “David Silva. 100%. I’d pay a lot of money to watch him play for the rest of his life.

“Some of the stuff he does, how he moves with the ball and the appreciation when he takes its first touch, he’s just a silky player.

“If you could watch him in training as well and how he is and his whole demeaner, how he is as a person – it excels him and how much you like him.”

The England international was also asked which striker he feared the most and revealed where he keeps his Premier League winners’ medal.
