His smile gives him away. David Silva is "happy and pleased" to continue at la Real Sociedad. The player from the Canary Islands spoke to Real Sociedad TV after extending his contract with the txuri urdin club and showed his satisfaction and ambition to continue doing well with the team.
“The last two years here have been fantastic and we want to finish this season qualifying for Europe. We are playing great games, playing very good soccer... To continue here for another year makes me very happy. I’m delighted“, acknowledged David.
The magician is well aware of the reasons that had led to the decision to continue at la Real. "Before coming here I already knew that the club was doing well. The team played good soccer with Imanol's style. The squad is growing a lot and to be in the fight for Europe every year is something good. I’m aware of the hard work that is done here, both in the club and with the team, that is a philosophy that I have always had in the teams where I have played for and I have continued doing the same here,” he said.
On a personal level, Silva states that: "my family is very comfortable here and the people from San Sebastián are lovely. In two years I have made a lot of friends and that has been key. People make you feel at home and that makes everything easier".
Silva confirms that la Real is starting to become a benchmark team outside our borders. "When you are at the top for so many years, players want to come here and that's good for the club. Having people who want to join the team and contribute is good for everyone," he said.
With five games to go in LaLiga, the goal is within reach. "We have to continue in the same dynamic, game by game, giving everything. If we continue as we have been doing so far, we have a good chance of booking a spot in Europe,” Silva concluded.
