​Man City boss Guardiola hails David Silva: One of the best I've seen

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola hailed David Silva as one of the best players he has seen.

The Spaniard managed his 400th game for City, helping them to a 3-1 win at Bournemouth.

The fact that Silva has maintained his excellent standards for nearly a decade at City is unbelievable to his manager.

"He played incredibly well," Guardiola told BBC Sport.

"David, in this kind of game – with a defence so deep and with such few spaces – is so good. He's one of the best players I've ever seen.

"What can I say? Everyone knows David. He moves between the lines like no one else in the world, he is a fighter."
