David Silva names the player who can replace him at City after his departure

David Silva has backed Phil Foden to fill his boots when he leaves Manchester City at the end of next season. Former Spain International announced his decision to leave the Etihad Stadium at the end of 2019/20, which will be his 10th and final campaign for the Premier League champions. Silva sang Foden's praises as he discussed his departure from City, telling reporters: "I'm sure he's going to be a fantastic player. He's a very nice man and he will be a good replacement for me. Apart from his natural skills, he's a very competitive person. He always wants to win and that makes a very good footballer. "When you're young, you always ask people with experience. I've given him lots of advice, like how to move on the pitch. He's taken the information in and he's getting better day by day. He reminds me of myself when I was young — especially how he is as a person. He's very quiet but always there, competing. He hates losing. The best advice I can give him is always to stay calm. Whatever happens in football, the highs and lows, always keep calm."
