Etihad Stadium star feels he was made into the scapegoat.
Manchester City midfielder David Silva admits he has no chance of getting back into the Spain team while Vicente del Bosque remains in charge.
The 25-year-old feels he has been left in the international wilderness since Spain’s 1-0 defeat to Switzerland at the World Cup, their only defeat of the tournament.
He has scored 11 goals in 49 appearances for Spain and was a member of the Euro 2008 and World Cup winning teams.
Silva, who moved to City in 2010 for £26million from Valencia, has been in fine form this season – bagging two gaols and three assists in five league games.
The playmaker would walk into most national teams, especially England’s, but the strength of the Spanish is shown when he has to compete with Xavi, Xabi Alonso, Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas.
“I feel that I have often played at a high level (for Spain),” Silva told Marca.
“I feel lucky to be there, be part of this extraordinary group who’s writing in our football history pages.
“But the coach does not want me, I feel that too. In South Africa I was the only casualty of the defeat to Switzerland.
“The confidence I felt in the former coach at Valencia and now in Manchester is not the same when I wear the Red shirt.
“Del Bosque is free to choose who is best to form the team and no disrespect to my colleagues who do enjoy his confidence. I just express what I feel.
“There are many good midfielders. Great, great! No objection to them to be chosen.
“I do not dispute the formation or selection but I analyse my situation and I’m not happy. And I do not see that the picture will change.”
