[David Silva reveals Barcelona and Real Madrid legend Laudrup was his hero growing up] Michael Laudrup. When I was a kid I just loved how he played the game. I was transfixed watching him play, and I liked his personality too and so for me, he was a real example. Also there’s [Juan Carlos] Valeron as well because he’s from my part of the world and a top quality player as well. He plays the game the way I like it, and has great quality on the ball.
[David Silva insists that he continues to work hard on his game at City under Pep Guardiola, a coach he considers to be one of the finest around] You learn an awful lot. After all the years I’ve been in the game and with all my experience, I’ve really learned a lot in these four or five months with him. Even when you think you can’t learn much more about the game, you can and do in fact learn more by looking at things in a different light. He truly is an exceptional coach
