DID YOU KNOW ?

Silva was born in Arguineguín, Gran Canaria, Canary Islands to Fernando Jiménez, a former municipal police officer who eventually was responsible for the safety of the Valencia CF stadium, and Eva Silva. His father is Canarian.

Contrary to popular belief, David Silva's family is not of Asian descent.

He has two younger siblings, sister Natalia and brother Nando.

Silva began playing football in the youth team of UD San Fernando, near Maspalomas. When he was 14, he received an offer to become a youth player at Valencia CF, which he accepted. He stayed in Valencia's youth set-up until he was 17.

Silva first represented Spain alongside Cesc Fàbregas in the 2003 FIFA U-17 World Championship in Finland, scoring three goals.
