Manchester City travel to Wales to face Cardiff City tomorrow afternoon and Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock is a big admirer of one player in particular who will be up against his side.
Speaking to the upcoming edition of Soccer Saturday on Sky Sports, the 69-year-old revealed that City magician David Silva is his favourite player in the entire world of football.
“[David Silva is] my favourite player in the world,” Warnock said. “He just does everything simple, it looks like he never breaks a sweat, but he does everything what you as a manager dreams of.
“To be at that level at Man City for so many years – you forget how long he’s been there – he never changes. If anything, he’s he’s like a real nice bottle of wine, he just gets better with age.”
Silva is now in his ninth season as a Citizen and will go down as one of the Premier League’s all-time great midfielders. The 32-year-old is considering a return to Spain with his beloved Las Palmas when his City contract expires at the end of the 2019-20 season.
