'One Of The Best I've Seen': Guardiola Salutes Sublime Silva
Bournemouth, United Kingdom, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 25th Aug, 2019 ) :Pep Guardiola hailed David Silva as "one of the best players" he has ever seen after the Spanish midfielder inspired Manchester City's 3-1 win at Bournemouth on Sunday.
The 33-year-old's assists for Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling underlined how much he will be missed when he leaves City at the end of the campaign.
City boss Guardiola was quick to salute Silva's masterclass on his 400th appearance for the club.
"He played incredibly well. David in this kind of game - with a defence so deep and with such few spaces - is so good," Guardiola said.
"He's one of the best players I've ever seen." Sterling's clinical strike took the City winger to six goals in four appearances this term and Guardiola praised the 24-year-old's latest crucial contribution.
"We didn't create so many chances today, but Raheem is still scoring goals, which is good for us," he said.
"It was a tough game, we knew it would be. We have seven points. We should have nine, but it's OK," Guardiola said.
