Before the match against Real Madrid

Tribute to David Silva

Friday's match will offer plenty of excitement. Facing Real Madrid is always a significant event in itself and this time it will be even more special as a well-deserved tribute will be paid to David Silva before the game.

The player from the Canary Islands has left an indelible mark on the entire txuri urdin family. From day one, David showed remarkable humility and commitment. He placed all his talent at the service of the team and was a key piece in the successes achieved in recent seasons. Qualifications for European competitions and, above all, the 2020 Copa del Rey title are just part of the legacy David leaves us. Being an example for all young players and a reference in the dressing room, both on and off the field, are invaluable intangibles. Watching him play in the txuri urdin colors made us happy. It was a gift.

On Friday, David will receive the gold and diamond badge from the txuri urdin club in recognition of his time with our club. It will be a fitting moment to stand and applaud a true legend, who, due to a serious injury, couldn't bid farewell on the field of the Reale Arena. Thank you for everything, Magician.
