David Silva said when he looks back at his career, he feels he has achieved more than he could have dreamt of.

Manchester City's David Silva says his trophy-laden career with the Premier League club has exceeded his wildest dreams as he prepares for his final league game against Norwich City on Sunday.

Silva has won 11 trophies in 10 seasons with Manchester City, including four Premier League titles, since arriving from Valencia in 2010.

The 34-year-old Spaniard, who has scored 60 goals in 308 league appearances, will depart the Etihad Stadium when his contract expires at the end of the season.

"When I look back at everything, I could never in my wildest dreams have imagined what I would achieve," Silva said. "When you are young, you don't dream about all of this,"

"You dream about becoming a footballer, a professional footballer, you dream of playing in the top flight – but you never think about all the things that you could possibly achieve."

Silva has won the Premier League's Player of the Month award just once despite being one of City's most consistent players but he is unconcerned with the lack of personal accolades.

"I would like to be remembered as a good guy, who enjoys football. I hope the people enjoyed my football as well. It's simple," he said.
