Man City midfielder Silva has dig at Chelsea's Mourinho over Mata treatment

Manchester City midfielder David Silva has taken a swipe at Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

Silva has slammed Mourinho over his treatment of Spain teammate Juan Mata.

He said: "It did surprise me when he was dropped and I don't think I was the only one.

"The years he has spent playing at Chelsea, he has brought a lot to the side and contributed hugely to their team effort.

"He is a top player and I think he has given Chelsea a lot in his time. As well as the time we spent playing together at Valencia, we were mates before that and besides him being a great player, he is a really nice guy as well."
