Silva feeling better about life at Man City
Silva was on the mark in City's win at Blackpool on Sunday.
He told the club's official website: "I think that, physically, I'm feeling better day by day.
"Of course, I need to get a few more minutes on the pitch to get to optimum fitness levels and I'm sure that will happen with so many games coming up.
"I've been away a couple of times with national team and that hasn't helped.
"I've settled well in Manchester but, again, the international break probably came at a bad time for me.
"I love the club and fans already and I'm starting to learn English so I can communicate better with my team-mates so, as time goes on, things will get easier for me.
"I've been treated really well by everyone and the other players have been great, but I need to push on now."
