Shearer: Man City ace David Silva the best ever Premier League foreigner

England legend Alan Shearer says Manchester City midfielder David Silva should be regarded as among the greatest foreigners to play in the Premier League.

He wrote for The Sun: "When we are talking about the best foreign players to grace the Premier League then David Silva is one of the best— if not the best.

"There's Thierry Henry at Arsenal, Manchester United's Eric Cantona or Silva's Manchester City team-mate Sergio Aguero, but the Spanish star is undoubtedly in the same bracket.

"He might not have scored a huge amount of goals but I don't think he is underrated by anyone who has watched him over the last ten years.

"It's impossible not to appreciate Silva's ability and what he has done for City.

"With four titles and two FA Cups he will rightly go down as one of the best players in the club's history."
