David Silva shares pride at City career

EL MAGO: Silva makes his way off the pitch after his final league appearance for City.
David Silva has revealed that he is proud of his Manchester City career after making his final ever Premier League appearance for the Club.

The Spaniard was as creative as ever for Pep Guardiola's side during the 5-0 victory over Norwich City at the Etihad.

The skipper came close to finding the net on a couple of occasions, only to be denied by some expert defending and goalkeeping by the visitors.

Silva has enjoyed a stellar decade at City, winning the Premier League four times and he was quick to express his pride at his achievements with the Club.

"Of course I am very proud," he said. "To win so many titles and the way we won it. I am a lucky guy.

"I have had a lot of nice moments, and this one as well, the last one.

"I will miss everything – even the weather as well! I'm going to miss working every day with these amazing people.

"They have made my life much easier. It was emotional and I love all of them."

Guardiola's men still have a UEFA Champions League last 16 second-leg clash with Real Madrid coming up early next month, and Silva is determined to keep focused.

"This was the last one in the Premier League, but we have to focus on the Champions League.

"I hope we can win it," he continued. "It's a shame that we can't play with the fans here, but of course, the safety of the people is the most important thing."

As reiterated by Guardiola on many occasions, Silva will be given a fitting tribute by everyone at the Club when supporters are allowed back in stadiums.
