Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has described club skipper David Silva as one of the best players that he has ever seen in the history of world football.
Guardiola was full of praise for David Silva in a chat with BBC Match of the Day.
David Silva was recently named the Manchester City skipper and he received the praise of his manager after his man-of-the-match performance against Bournemouth in a Premier League clash played at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday evening.
David Silva was making his 400th appearance for Manchester City and he was the standout player on the pitch.
The petite Manchester City midfielder ran the show from the middle of the park to aid the Citizens to a 3-1 win over Bournemouth.
Manchester City took the lead through Sergio Aguero off an assist from Kevin De Bruyne who set a new record for the fastest time to 50 assists.
Raheem Sterling added a second goal for the Premier League champions before Harry Wilson pulled one back before the halftime interval shortly after coming on as a substitute for the injured Charlie Daniels.
Manchester City extended their lead to a two-goal cushion through Sergio Aguero in the second half and that was how the game ended.
