Manchester City midfielder David Silva has named four former Manchester United players as part of his list when asked about the toughest opponents he has come up against.
The experienced Spaniard also revealed that Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and Vincent Kompany were among the most talented teammates he has played along
“When I first arrived, Joe, Gareth Barry, James Milner, Adam Johnson. They were great players, but they also made things easier for me, they really helped me to settle.”
Elsewhere, Silva went on to name his toughest opponents he has come up against, and this included former Man Utd players Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary and Phil Neville.
“Players that are part of the competition like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, the Neville brothers. They are part of a big time at United and it was always tough when we faced them. They were all fantastic players and very passionate for their club and the national team too.”
While Silva is due to leave City once his contract expires, it is not yet clear where he will end up. ESPN report that a return to Valencia is a possibility, but a potential deal is being complicated by the current coronavirus pandemic.
Furthermore, the report adds that due to the current situation, Silva is going to have to decide whether to leave the club on 30 June or sign a new short-term extension.
