David Silva Carries His Healthy Baby Boy As Mascot For Huddersfield Game

When you consider the personal issues David Silva went through last season, the Spanish international produced some incredible performances for his club and country.

The 32-year-old had to make frequent visits to and from his home in Spain following the premature birth of his son, Mateo, with City affording one of their key player's as much as time off as he need, an example of the great management of Pep Guardiola.

Yes, it meant there was a period where he missed key games, but the club and his manager insisted family comes first.

Back in May this year, Silva took his son home after five months in hospital.

He may have missed City's title celebrations in Manchester on that Monday night, but he had everything he wanted in the palm of his hands.

The Spaniard took to Twitter to announce that he was taking his son home, posting: "We're finally going home! We will be eternally grateful for the amazing team of the pediatric maternity and ICU units of the Hospital Casa de Salud for the professionalism and human treatment that have shown us these 5 long months. Just thank you!"

Now, at the start of the Premier League season, the little magician brought his son on to the Etihad pitch before their game against Huddersfield.

In fact, Silva stood with Mateo for the team picture, a really special moment for all the Silva family and those who have supported him through recent months.

What a moment.
