David Silva retires from football after a serious injury


David Silva has just announced his retirement from professional football after a 20-year career. He did this with an emotional video in which he reviewed his career wearing shorts and closed it with a “thank you football”.

He had to say enough at the age of 37 after suffering a serious anterior cruciate ligament tear.

However, the career of the magician from Arguinegu in has been one of the most successful and complete in the history of football.


Talent, game vision and goals are some of the many virtues with which the Spaniard has delighted us throughout these seasons, a unique player who never failed in big matches and competitions.

If we add the Spanish wizard’s 124 goals and 154 assists in 784 games, in addition to the respect and admiration of the football world, it seems a near-perfect career, as he only needed to win the Champions League.

Eibar, Celta Vigo, Valencia, Manchester City and Real Sociedad witnessed this amazing footballer.

David Silva will go down in Real Sociedad history as one of the footballers who won the Cup title in 2021, 34 years after the last time he had reached the club’s windows, with which he was close to a centenary.

During his football career, Silva has won 1 World Cup, 2 European Championships, 4 Premier Leagues, 2 Copa del Rey, 5 Spanish Cups, 2 FA Cups and three English Super Cups.
