Picture of the 1.70 m (5 ft 7 in) tall Spanish attacking midfielder of Manchester City

David Josué Jiménez Silva is a Spanish midfielder who is playing for the current Premier League Champion, Manchester City. He was born in 1986 and he had been playing professional football for many years in Spain before making the move to England. The mother of the attacking midfielder, Eva, is Japanese, which explains why some fans have nicknamed the Spaniard “El Chino”. He has been playing at City for many years now, as he came over from the Spanish side Valencia in 2010. He is seen as one of the very best midfielders of this generation. As a player of Man. City, el Chino has been the champion of the Premier League 3 times. No championship was more dramatic than the one that was snatched away from Manchester United in stoppage time in 2012. The playmaker has also been selected for the Spanish National Squad, La Roja, for more than 100 times. He has played a very vital role in the squad that won 3 consecutive big tournaments (UEFA Euro 2008, FIFA World Cup 2010, UEFA Euro 2012). After a very disappointing FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia, el Chino announced that he was going to retire from international football.
