Manchester City star David Silva has dismissed talk of him leaving the club at the end of the season, according to the official club website.
Silva had been linked with a move away from the club should they not qualify for the Champions League, but Silva insists there is no truth behind the reports:
“My initial reaction was surprise, but as I have said before, I am happy to be here and I find myself very much at ease with life here.”
The Spanish World Cup winner also told of why he is happy to stay in the Premier League rather than return to his native country: “The thing about a big city like Manchester is that people respect your space. They leave you to get on with your life. In Spain, people can get on your back and maybe live the game more. Here it’s nice to go out and chill in the city.”
