I'm happy that Chelsea's Mata, Man City's Silva are doing well in England - Valencia's Pablo

Valencia's Pablo Hernandez admits he is delighted that former teammates Juan Mata and David Silva are doing well in England.

Chelsea winger Mata and Manchester City playmaker Silva are two of the most consistent players in the Premier League this term and Pablo, who takes on Mata tonight in the Champions League, is thrilled for his old Los Che colleagues.

"I swapped shirts with Juan here in Valencia and we'll swap again in London," he told The National.

"I'm pleased that he's doing well in London. He deserves all the success and so does one of my other roommates, David Silva [at Manchester City]."

And Pablo replied that he respects the English top flight as a competition but for now is happy at Estadio Mestalla when asked if a potential move to the Premier League was on the cards.

"I like English football and I think the English and Spanish leagues are the best two in the world," he added.

"I'm enjoying myself at Valencia, though, just as Silva, David Villa and Mata enjoyed it here."
