David Silva returned to his hometown, Arguineguín, in the south of Gran Canaria with all the four titles he won last season with City to share his success with his family, friends, neighbours and the young players of CD Arguineguín. ​

"It is a proud moment for me to be here, with the people of my land, and hopefully some of these children can get titles like this in the future, and enjoy as I have done", said David.

“I would have really loved to have this opportunity as a child and enjoy an evening like this with any of my idols”.
