“Today is a sad day for me. Today is time to say goodbye to what I have dedicated my whole life to,” the 37-year-old Real Sociedad midfielder said in a video posted on social media.

Silva won four Premier League titles in a decade with Manchester City after signing from Valencia in 2010.

Silva joined Real Sociedad after leaving Manchester City in 2020, and was ready to begin his fourth season with the Spanish club.

He appeared in 125 matches for his country, winning the World Cup in 2010 as well as the European Championships in 2008 and 2012.
