Former Manchester City midfielder David Silva has his eyes on winning silverware with Real Sociedad.
David Silva announced a move back to Spain and joined Real Sociedad on a free transfer.
The 34-year old midfielder won four Premier League titles, the EFL Cup five times and the FA Cup twice during his time with City.
Sociedad finished sixth in their last season and Silva is positive that his team can challenge Barcelona and Real Madrid for silverware in the coming years.
“I’m really excited to get started here and meet my new team-mates and the club staff,” he told a media conference.
“The team is playing some great football and I hope to add to that here and have some great years at the club.
“I have high expectations in terms of the football we’ll be playing and I think we can compete for silverware.
“I’ll be an important part of the team and in this case, because of my experience, I’ll help the younger players as well.
“I’ve been lucky enough to win a lot of things in my career, I’m very competitive and I’m going to try and do the same here because that’s why I’ve been brought in.”
Real Sociedad’s participation in the Europa League was a motivating factor for the Spaniard to join the club.
“Of course, after so many years playing in Europe, you want to continue doing that,” he explained.
“I also came because I like the style of football the team plays. I also came for the relaxed way of life here which I was already familiar with having lived in the Basque Country years ago.”
