Man City boss Mancini: Silva one of best players in world

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has no doubts about his in-form midfielder David Silva.

Silva, a member of City's FA Cup-winning side last season, also caught the eye with a double strike in Spain's Euro 2012 qualifying win over Scotland last week.

Mancini, the former Inter Milan boss, said: "I think Silva is one of the best players in Europe and the world.

"I think Silva can play for Real Madrid, Barcelona. He is an incredible player.

"He has improved a lot in the last year as a guy and as a player.

"I saw him for the first time when I played in the Champions League several years ago - Inter v Valencia. He was young then but he was incredible."
