David Silva insists Manchester United have huge respect for Manchester City

Manchester City playmaker David Silva has said that Manchester United have huge respect for them considering the power shift over the past seven years. The Red Devils were the dominant force in England during the reign of Sir Alex Ferguson, but things have transformed thereafter with the Citizens stamping their authority with big-name signings.

Speaking on the club’s official website, Silva explained that the Citizens had plenty of respect for the Red Devils during his first season (2010-11) with the club. He added that club’s fortunes have since changed in the derbies and they are presently the team, who are earning the respect from their cross-town rivals amid the dominance.
