The 37-year-old joined Real Sociedad in 2020, after several years at Manchester City. This summer he had to put his football boots on the shelf due to a knee injury, but he hasn’t been sitting on the lazy side since. He has already started his new job as a wine producer.
The Spaniard owns a vineyard in Gran Canaria, but naturally has a distant connection to day-to-day operations. After ten years in England and the last three years in Spanish football, opportunities for work in the team are becoming scarce. However, he now seems to be spending more time in the company. British Mirror He describes the production as a “huge success.”
The winery is named Bodegas Tameran and is managed by Silva and wine specialist Jonathan Garcia. The former says he was introduced to wine through a former team-mate, and he had special wines transported from Spain to Manchester, when he was playing for City.
I got an unexpected message
Four years ago, he bought the vineyard and later built a wine cellar on the same site. Today the project has become a successful business, and he now wants to get more involved in it.
Garcia, with whom Silva runs the winery, met the footballer through social media. Silva, who is interested in wine, sent him a message and congratulated him on his success. Garcia was shocked and couldn’t believe the City star had drunk his wine.
After realizing that he was not a fake user, but a real footballer, the two eventually formed a close friendship. This is how wine success was achieved in Gran Canaria.
I wanted to continue my career
Now the two will work more closely together, but first Silva will have to treat the knee that ended his playing career.
“I will go to San Sebastian and live there for a year, for rehabilitation. My son will go to school there and the family will be there, so we will return to Gran Canaria after that.”
Liverpool fans tremble: – It’s like the end of the season
Although he played football until he was 37 years old, he would have liked to stay on the football field longer.
“I wanted to play for another year because I felt good last season. Then I got injured and realized I wouldn’t be able to play anymore, but I’m fine. Everyone around me is sorry that I can’t play anymore, but that’s life.”
