The magic leaves its mark


David Silva left an indelible mark in Manchester. We're not just talking about last Thursday's match but of the ten seasons in which he dressed the shirt of City, the team in which he became a legend. 436 games wearing the shirt of the blues, 4 Premier Leagues, 2 FA Cups, 5 League Cups and 3 Community Shield. Not bad.

In tribute to the Magician of Arguineguín, the English club unveiled in August 2021 a beautiful statue of Silva in the surroundings of the Etihad Stadium. It was not until Friday that the player from the Canary Islands was able to visit the sculpture made in his honor. Accompanied by the txuri urdin executives, Silva contemplated in situ this beautiful work and visited his former teammates. A precious moment for someone who made history in Manchester and who is a legend in world soccer.
