Man City icon David Silva: Changes I've made with different managers

Manchester City icon David Silva admits he's had to change his game as the club has changed managers.

Silva has reflected on how his role has gradually changed in his time at City, revealing his preferred position.

“Under Roberto Mancini and Manuel Pellegrini, I used to play on the wing and I'm currently playing in the midfield," Silva said.

“The manager has decided to put me in that position. He did well doing that and I feel my skills shine more in there.

“Currently I am in touch with the ball more often, in the build-up in attacking positions. That puts my game in the spotlight."
