Man City star Silva not interested in comparisons with Barcelona's Messi

Manchester City ace David Silva has dismissed comparisons with Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

Silva, 26, is searching for honours ­instead of hero worship.

He told the Daily Star: "No, I don't aim to be better than Messi.

"I aim to win more trophies with my team and to improve myself - not to be the equal of Messi.

"But I have changed a lot. When I came here I wasn't physically 100 per cent but I feel a lot better now.

"It's hard on you physically in England and it will be a tough game to win against Spurs. It's difficult to say who are our bigger rivals, Spurs or United.

"They are both very close but we have to ­concentrate on our own game."
