Pep Guardiola and David Silva laugh and joke at Manchester United's expense in Manchester City reunion

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was reunited with club legend David Silva last week.

The now-Real Sociedad midfielder was in the north-west of England with the La Liga side for UEFA Europa League action last week.

The Spanish outfit took on Manchester United at Old Trafford on matchday one of their European campaign.

In a night to remember, the former Manchester City star played a pivotal role in guiding his side towards a memorable 0-1 victory against Erik ten Hag's side.


However, the trip to Manchester would not have been totally complete without revisiting his former home on the other side of the city.


As revealed by Manchester City this week, David Silva - alongside the entire coaching set-up and Real Sociedad team - trained at the City Football Academy after the game, giving the legendary Spanish midfielder an opportunity to link-up with a few familiar faces.

After taking a look at the mosaic and statue to commemorate his service to the football club, David Silva then met up with current player, John Stones.


The pair had a brief exchange at the club's training ground, before David Silva reunited with a number of Manchester City's coaching staff, as well as Txiki Begiristain and Pep Guardiola.

But it was the exchange with the latter that has got everyone smiling.

"I wasn't sure you were going to come by," Pep Guardiola opened, before swiftly moving on to laugh and joke at Manchester United's expense following the result just hours prior.

Guardiola continued while embracing his former player, "Winning at Old Trafford again? Winning at Old Trafford again?!"


David Silva responded, "Yeah, another one!"

The 0-1 victory at Old Trafford meant that David Silva has now won at Old Trafford seven times across his career.

That is now also the most victories by a visiting player in the period since he played there for the first time, back in February 2011.


Continuing while speaking to Pep Guardiola, David Silva also revealed the birth of his second child, in a heartwarming moment between the pair.

Guardiola asked, "Everything ok?"

To which Silva responded, "All good, yes..."

"Fine (with the little one). And now we've just had a girl, just this Sunday."


Guardiola, in shock, replied, "Ah, I didn't know! That's great! A little friend for them!"
