“I’ve never really seen myself in the Premier League previously,” Silva replied to question on whether he was ever close to playing in the league.

“That was because I saw it as a difficult style of football, personally. I didn’t have any desire to play in the Premier League.

“My impression of the football playing was that one with long ball, high balls and long shots. At the time, I couldn’t really see myself playing in that championship. But over time, the championship has developed tremendously. There is a lot more technical quality.”
