Career at Manchester United

He made his debut against Liverpool FC at Anfield in 1999. His first season at Manchester Utd was not exceptional; replacing an injured Ronny Johnsen in the centre with Jaap Stam. By the 2001/2002 season Mikael had established himself in the United defence ahead of the veteran Denis Irwin, and was proving to be adept both in defence and getting forward. He set up numerous goals for Ruud van Nistelrooy, notably away to Deportivo in a 2-0 towards the end of the season. There was criticism put his way after the Bayern Munich game where he was largely blamed for the late equaliser in the 1-1 draw, but this typified United's season as a whole, and he was one of their better performances. {{Football club infobox | clubname = Liverpool FC | image = fullname = Liverpool FC | nickname = The Reds | founded = 1892 | ground = Anfield | capacity = 45,000 | chairman = D.R.Moores | Chief Executive Officer = R.N.Parry | manager = Rafael Benitez | league = FA Premiership | season = 2005-06 | position = FA premiership, 5th | pattern_la1=|pattern_b1=|pattern_ra1=| leftarm1=FFFFFF|body1=FF0000...

During the next season, his most recent championship winning year he carried on initially where he left off, but following injury to Rio Ferdinand and the poor performance of an ageing Laurent Blanc, he was switched to his favoured position of central defence. Here he forged a successful partnership mid-season with Wes Brown at the heart of the defence until Rio's return, looking calm and assured, using his pace to good effect, whilst continuing to provide goals with his accurate diagonal balls. Laurent Blanc (born November 19, 1965 in Alès) is a French football defender, who scored the first golden goal in World Cup history in the 1998 World Cup. ... Wesley Michael Brown (born October 13, 1979 in Manchester) is an English football player. ...


He continued in this role the following season where he and Rio Ferdinand excelled as a pair and after half a season where being touted as the best central defensive pairing the club had seen since Bruce and Pallister. However, this was cut short following Rio Ferdinand's eight month ban for missing a drug test. In the latter half of this season when being paired with an unfit Wes Brown, United's defence proved to be rather less secure and both Brown and Silvestre were at fault for numerous goals and despite winning the FA Cup with a 3-0 victory over Millwall, this uncertainty at the heart of the defence was to continue into the start of the 2004-05 season.

Millwall Football Club are an English professional football team based at the New Den Stadium in Bermondsey, South East London. ...


Now, following the partnership of Brown and Ferdinand flourishing at the heart of the defence, and the recent signings of Nemanja Vidić and Patrice Evra, Silvestre's place in the squad would appear to be less than secure. However at the end of last season he showed some fine form, particularly in the 2-0 victory over Arsenal and back at the left of United's defence. He admits that he was given the option to leave during the January transfer window during 2006, with an opportunity to join former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier at Lyon. However to his credit remained at the club and has since proven himself to be a useful member of the team.

He started the 2006-07 in typical style against Watford, scoring a classy goal, his first away goal for United, to give United the lead, and then 15 minutes later making a defensive error to aid their equaliser. He was starting to reassert himself in the left-back role when unfortunately he broke a metatarsal in a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal. After recovering and playing several games, he dislocated his shoulder in a Champions League tie with Lille F.C, putting him out till late March 2007 [1].

International career
