Valencia coach Unai Emery is counting on the support of David Silva when they face Champions League opponents Manchester United.

Silva joined Manchester City for £24million in the summer after spending a decade at the Mestalla, having joined Valencia as a 14-year-old.

Clearly, such service has created a deep passion within Silva and, as City are not in action this week, Emery said his side will have the backing of a very famous fan as they look to oust United from top spot in Group C.

"David will probably call to see us at some point and I think he is going to be at the game tomorrow," confirmed Emery.
