Man City has announced plans for a statue of Spanish playmaker David Silva and former skipper Vincent Kompany at Etihad Stadium next year 2021. David Silva spent ten years with the English Premier League side and he played his last game for the club in Saturday’s Champions League defeat by Lyon.
David Silva was signed from Valencia in 2010 and the 34-year-old who has made 436 appearances and helped Man City win 14 trophies will be remembered for his efforts in the team and for that the club management has decided they will build him a statue alongside Vincent Kompany who left the club in the last transfer window.
David Silva has already moved to Spanish side Real Sociedad but the club still holds that the player’s statue will be built to remember him, but as they discuss on the building of the statue for the two players fans has been asking what of Yaya Toure who was also very instrumental in City’s triumph, wont the club also build the black player a statue?
Manchester City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak said: “David is a transformational player, a quiet leader who has inspired everyone around him,” “David’s statue will act as a lasting reminder of the wonderful moments that he gave us, not only as an incredible footballer but as an inspiring ambassador who represented this football club with great dignity at all times.”
The statue will be unveiled in 2021, along with another tribute dedicated to former City captain Vincent Kompany, who left the club last year and not the head coach of Anderlect.
