David Silva explains why he's leaving Man City

Manchester City midfielder David Silva has explained why he'll be leaving at the end of the season.

The veteran announced his departure over the summer.

“Obviously, it's difficult [to leave after so many years]. It's been a long time, but all good things come to an end," he said.

"I want it to be this way, at a great level. The club has changed a lot. Every year, the team and the club have improved. That's why lasting here for a long time and playing regularly is really difficult.

"For that reason, I'm very pleased for what I have achieved during my time here."
