David Silva is proud of the career he's carving out for himself at Manchester City.

But the Spaniard admits winning the Champions League is a burning ambition.

Silva, 27, said: "I think my career in itself feels complete now but it doesn't stop you wanting to improve all the time as a person and a player. Each year you start again, want to learn, work hard and keep winning - whether it is complete or not.

"The Champions League is the real ­motivation. Every trophy you could win serves as a source of motivation.

"You want to get better each year and win more and more.

"And, from a personal point of view, I want to win the Champions League."
