David Silva has said that he is not surprised with how Frank Lampard has taken to management.
“I could see a manager in him when he was here. He was an incredible player, a world-class player,” said Silva, who will bring his City career to an end after this season.
“The way he played, as well as his experience in football, now he transmits it to his players. He is showing it already, he is going to be a fantastic manager.
“I’m not surprised [how well he’s done so quickly]. He has clear ideas and he is doing very well. What matters is that he has been given the opportunity and he’s making the most of it.”
“I think so. Even though it’s Lampard’s first season, they are playing really well,” Silva added.
“They are there in the title race. It will be a beautiful game: two attacking teams that want to keep the ball and score goals. It’s going to be an entertaining game for the fans.
“Abraham is playing really well, like the rest of his team. They have players that they are doing really well and helping him.
“They have also a bunch of young players and, when the team plays well, it’s always easier for them to shine.”
