David Silva Considers to Retire from Spain National Team

By news-admin – One by one, the rest of Spain national team’s golden generation in 2008-2012 decided to retire. Andres Iniesta decided to retire after Spain went home early in the 16 groups round of 2018 World Cup.

His compatriot, David Silva, could follow the retirement decision of 33-year-old midfielder. Similar as Iniesta, Silva was also the part of La Furia Roja’s success while achieving two Euro titles (2008 and 2012) and the 2010 World Cup.

The 32-year-old player has played in 125 matches with Spain and scored 35 goals. Silva is actually in doubt to pick the decision. He hopes to get the answer after discussing with his manager in Manchester City, Pep Guardiola.

The biggest consideration triggered Silva’s intention to retire is his 7-year-old son, Mateo. Silva wants to have more time with Mateo who once hospitalized in Valencia Casa de Salud hospital due to the premature condition.

“Since the World Cup, I have been concentrating 100 percent on my son. I’m returning to Manchester on Sunday and then I will start thinking about football again,” Silva said.

“I honestly don’t know whether I will continue playing for Spain. It is something I must decide in the coming days and weeks and when I go back to Manchester,” he continued reported by Mirror.

“At this moment, the only things on my mind are my son, my girlfriend and my family. I will talk to other people, maybe I will talk to Pep, but in the end, it will be only my decision,” Silva concluded.
