David Silva has backed Phil Foden to replace him at Manchester City.
The Spanish playmaker recently announced he will be playing for one more season at Manchester City and then leave the club. Silva will have completed exactly ten years after this upcoming season and wants to leave the club where he has won so much. However, he has assured City fans that he is confident Foden will replace him.
He said, “I’m sure he’s going to be a fantastic player. He’s a very nice man and he will be a good replacement for me.
Apart from his natural skills, he’s a very competitive person. He always wants to win and that makes a very good footballer.
When you’re young, you always ask people with experience. I’ve given him lots of advice, like how to move on the pitch. He’s taken the information in and he’s getting better day by day.
He reminds me of myself when I was young — especially how he is as a person. He’s very quiet but always there, competing. He hates losing.
The best advice I can give him is always stay calm. Whatever happens in football, the highs and lows, always keep calm.”
