David Silva Retires From International Football
Manchester City star David Silva has confirmed he will no longer represent Spain at international level, in a letter published on social media.
Silva, 32, won the 2010 World Cup and 2008 and 2012 European Championship titles and played 125 times for Spain after making his debut in 2006.
Silva took to social media to say he was “very proud” of his achievements and that the decision to retire was “one the most difficult of my career”.
He added: “I lived and dreamed with a team that will forever be remembered.
“It has not been easy, after all I’ve experienced, to write these lines.
“I’ve spent days and weeks considering this. The national team gave me everything and helped me grow as a player and a person.
“I leave proud and happy, bringing an end to a time full of emotions and memories, like of the figure of Luis Aragones, a maestro who will never be forgotten.”
