The Brilliant Story Behind David Silva's 'Missing' Capital One Cup Winners Medal

Many picked up on the fact he wasn't wearing a winners medal in the following picture with youngster Manu Garcia and former winger Jesus Navas.

City prospect Garcia, who is currently on loan at French club Toulouse, revealed that the Spanish midfielder gave him his 2016 Capital One Cup winners medal following the victory over Liverpool.

Despite making two appearances in the competition against Sunderland and Crystal Palace, manager Manuel Pellegrini decided to leave the youngster out of the squad for the final. It was a heartbreaking moment.
