“It was a pleasure to play alongside him, both for the national team and for Valencia. For me, he’s one of the best players in the last ten years in Spain. He’s an amazing talent. When we played together for Spain, he played much of the time behind me and he gave me a lot of chances on goal. He helped me a lot with the finishing and it was a real, real pleasure to play with him.” – David Villa
“He pulls the strings on the pitch. A brilliant footballer with great movement, he can score, assist, a player who decides a game. He’s got so much to his game, that I would consider him one of the best ever.” – Andres Iniesta
“David Silva is one of the most talented players that Spain has ever produced – without a shadow of a doubt. He’s a spectacular footballer! He has been throughout his entire career. Right from when he played for Eibar and Celta, and when he went back to Valencia. For the national team, he has been a cornerstone of that generation of highly talented Spanish footballers that went on to win the European Championship, the World Cup and then a second European title is remarkable. David was a vital component and absolutely essential to that team.” – Xavi
“The year I had there [at Man City], to train with him every day, to see his humility as a player and his quality and everything he brings, was something special. I am delighted that he has had the success and all the recognition because he is incredible.” – Frank Lampard
“He’s a bit of a b*stard. You can tell he learned his football on the street, like he’s threatening ‘There’ll only be one winner here.’ David has that in him and you don’t realise it until you get to know him.” – Pep Guardiola
