Guardiola doubted David Silva’s ability to succeed in the Premier League

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has acknowledged that he had doubts whether David Silva would succeed in the Premier League when he joined the Citizens from Valencia in the summer of 2010. The former Spain international had the choice of joining of some of the elite teams across Europe but he was tempted by the project presented by the Mancunian giants.

Since then, he has racked over 400 appearances for the side across all competitions and during this period, he has become one of the most important players in the club’s history. Speaking in a recent press conference, Guardiola admitted personally that he had concerns over the midfielder’s physique when he made the move to the Etihad Stadium.
