Pep Guardiola hails legendary Man City star ahead of Man Utd clash

Silva has been one of the Premier League’s top players this season and was handed a new one-year deal by City last week.
The Spanish maestro has scored twice and produced eight assists in the top-flight this term and is gearing up for today’s Manchester derby.
City boss Guardiola has hailed his star man ahead of the huge clash at Old Trafford.
“If I say [he’s the best ever City player], Mike Summerbee is going to kill me!” he said.
“If you say he’s the best, I’m not going to deny it. Definitely he’s a legend, like Joe Hart, Yaya Toure, Vincent Kompany, Pablo Zabaleta.
“We delighted to extend his contract for one more year. He is one of the best. He has this special talent to understand the game.”
Silva has committed his future to City until 2020 and is eager to help the club win more titles in the coming years.
“I am so happy to have committed my future to City,” Silva said.
“I am incredibly proud of what I have achieved at City in my seven-and-a-half seasons here and with Pep in charge, I feel we are in a great position to win trophies this season and beyond.
“The style of football we are playing is a pleasure to be a part of and I look forward to winning more titles in the years to come.”
