Manchester City captain and decorated midfielder David Silva has just completed a milestone of his career: achieving a total of 400 appearances in the Sky Blues jersey.
The 33 year old has been a pillar behind the club’s success, hailed as ‘one of Manchester City’s greatest ever players’, and has won four Premier League titles, two FA Cups, two Community Shields and four League Cups.

The Spanish international, who won the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the UEFA Euro 2008 and 2012, was under the Radar of Roberto Mancini back in 2010, who brought the then 24 year old from Valencia.
Silva has been a key performer under the current City gaffer Pep Guardiola, who eulogized the skipper in the pre match conference on Friday.
“He is a competitor, a winner. Four Premier Leagues he won, and a lot of domestic prizes. This generation of players – like Joe Hart, Vincent Kompany, Sergio Aguero – helped to make this club in a better position in the Premier League and in European competition.” the 48 year old said, courtesy to Goal.com.
The upcoming season is going to be the final one for David Silva at the Etihad Stadium, as the player himself confirmed a month ago.
Sergio Agüero scored a brace in the match at Dean Court yesterday, in addition to one from Raheem Sterling. Harry Wilson was the lone goalscorer for The Cherries, as the final scoreline was 3-1.
