Silva: I was right to choose Man City over Real Madrid, Barcelona

David Silva knows he made the right decision to move to Manchester City last year.

The Spanish ace is determined to slaughter the Villarreal defence tonight in the same way he carved up Manchester United in that historic 6-1 Premier League win at Old Trafford nine days ago.

Such was his performance - he also scored the fifth goal - that fans bombarded the Etihad to express their admiration for the impish little matador.

Silva revealed to The Sun: "City received many messages of congratulations in the club offices. Never did I think that would happen.

"Now I am totally convinced it was the right decision to leave La Liga and join City.

"Real Madrid and Barcelona are definitely two great clubs but City believed in me and I'm very well here."
