Venables: Man City ace Silva great advertisement for Spanish players

Former Barcelona coach Terry Venables hailed David Silva's performance for Manchester City in their thumping of Manchester United.

El Tel felt Silva was the best player on the pitch.

Venables told The Sun: "The slick Spaniard was heart of City's creativity as he enhanced his growing reputation even further with a really stunning performance. United simply could not handle him.

"Silva was given more space and time on the ball the more the game went on with United defenders finding it impossible to shackle him.

"Almost every time he got on the ball he had United on the back foot and running scared.

"He played with such confidence and flamboyance you wonder why more Premier League managers do not look to boost their squads with Spaniards. They always settle here quickly."
