David Silva is the Bluemoon Player of the Season 2016/17Spanish playmaker optimistic about club's prospect next season

David Silva has been voted as the Bluemoon Player of the Season for the 2016/17 campaign. The Spanish international polled an overwhelming 80% of the vote, way ahead of his fellow team mates. The mercurial midfielder made 45 appearances in Pep Guardiola's first season in charge, and scored nine goals.

Silva admitted that it had been a disappointing year overall for City, but is confident that Guardiola will improve the club's fortunes next season.

"When you don't win anything, at the end of the day, you cannot say it is a good season,"

"It was his first season. Now he is building a team in his image, so we will improve. There's great potential next season, for sure. The team now knows his style of play and the club are signing players that he wants. I think the team is going to be much better.

"I had been told really good things about him and he has lived up to them. He's the best manager I have ever had."

Raheem Sterling finished in second place, after netting 11 goals in 47 games, whilst Sergio Aguero came third.
