Speaking at an official press conference the day before the game, Man City manager Pep Guardiola said of Silva: “I was very sad (about his retirement). What he showed Mansitere was truly unbelievable. He is one of the best players I have ever seen. He expects only good things in the future. He praised him, saying, “I was happy to be with him and to be in command.”
Fans who visited the stadium that day applauded enthusiastically for about a minute, then focused on the clash between the two clubs again.
Meanwhile, Silva left Valencia (Spain) in July 2010 and built a successful career wearing a Man City uniform.

Silva shone at Manchester City with 77 goals and 140 assists in 436 games for 10 years. He won the EPL 4 times, the League Cup 5 times, the Community Shield 3 times and the FA Cup 2 times. His only regret was the absence of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) trophy.
After that, Silva finished his career after playing for three years in a Real Sociedad uniform.
