David Silva reveals why he chose Real Sociedad ahead of Lazio

David Silva reveals why he chose Real Sociedad ahead of Lazio

34-year-old David Silva snubbed the Serie A side, Lazio, with a last-minute move back to his native in Spain.

After ten big years at Manchester City, Real Sociedad confirmed the shock signing of the former Manchester City midfielder on a free transfer. The 34-year-old signed a two-year deal through to the summer of 2022.

The move no doubt have created vexation to Lazio. The club director Igli Tare said

"I learned about David Silva's transfer to Real Sociedad. I have great respect for the player, but not for the man," Tare said.

Speaking to his new club official website Silva highlighted his reasons for returning to the LA Liga ahead of a move to the Seria A.

"The sensations are very good. After the announcement, I have received many expressions of affection, messages from many people," Silva said.

"I've had quite a few offers in all this time. I decided on Real Sociedad because they are doing things very well. They have a style that suits my game very well. I know San Sebastian, it is a very beautiful and quiet city."

"My family had to do with my decision. I watched Real Sociedad games and they play very well. I also have very good references from the coach."

"We can do important things, there is a good group and for my, conditions it is very good. It is a very nice challenge, I am looking forward to starting."

"Holidays help relax the head. I hope we finish the challenge well and I can do my bit to help the club win things."

"There is a great atmosphere, I already played in the old stadium and the grass was always spectacular. When you sign up for a new club, you want to get started. Now I will rest my mind and then start with my batteries charged."

Silva will play in La Liga for the first time since the 2009-10 campaign, his final season with Valencia before he left to join Man City.
