Watford boss Silva takes note of Pep praise


Watford head coach Marco Silva insists he has no special plans to deal with in-form Man City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne on Saturday.

City boss Pep Guardiola hailed the Belgian as one of the best players he has ever seen after his side’s 4-0 Champions League victory over Feyenoord on Wednesday evening.

De Bruyne is yet to score this season, but assisted two of City’s goals in their 5-0 demolition of Liverpool last weekend, before setting up another in midweek.

Silva said: “He’s a fantastic footballer, an amazing player, and when Pep says something like that after working with Lionel Messi and all the others it’s clear for everybody.

“He is a big player in the City team – but of course they have more.”
