Silva admits to Spain frustration

David Silva has admitted to feeling "like a supporting actor" for Spain since their 2010 World Cup triumph.

Despite boasting 50 caps for his country since making his debut in 2006, Manchester City winger Silva has struggled to command a first-team place following Spain's opening game in South Africa against Switzerland last summer.

It was a fixture that Spain, managed by Vicente Del Bosque, lost 1-0, and Silva has been reduced to a bit-part role ever since. When asked how he views his role in the national team now, he told AS: "Like a supporting actor."

He added: "I feel that I don't have the confidence of the coach. When I was the only victim of the defeat against Switzerland, I thought that it could be to do with fitness, but afterwards the critics towards my performances have always been good, although that isn't enough for the coach to trust in me.

"Before that game (against Switzerland) I felt confident. I played regularly, I had a place in the team, but after that defeat everything started to change. As such, over time, I've thought that I was the victim of that bad start that we had in the World Cup.''

Silva is well aware that competition is fierce for berths in Spain's midfield, though, with Pedro, Juan Mata, Jesus Navas, Santi Cazorla and Andres Iniesta all providing competition for the position he hopes to occupy.

"My team-mates are very good and it's not up to me to decide if I have to be part of the starting XI. The only thing I say is that, whilst Luis (Aragones) had confidence in me, Del Bosque thinks differently,'' he said.

With Spain now planning to defend the European Championship trophy they won in 2008, the midfielder added: "The decision of who goes or not will be the coach's. I'm going to work hard to maintain this level I'm at now, but even still I doubt I'm going to have a leading role in the European Championships.''
