Bernardo: Playing alongside Silva is an education

Bernardo Silva says playing alongside David Silva is an education.

The Portuguese playmaker laid on the pass for Silva’s first goal at Swansea on Wednesday evening and linked up well with the Spaniard and Kevin De Bruyne throughout.

Bernardo says the more playing time he gets alongside Silva plus training with him every day means he can continue to learn from one of the best midfielders in world football and, in doing so, improve his own game.

“David is a fantastic player and for me, it is a pleasure to play alongside him and to be able to learn from him every day in training and every time we play a game,” he said.

“He has won almost everything – the World Cup, the European Championships, the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup and it’s a genuine privilege to be able to play alongside him and all other fantastic players we have here at City.

“In short, he is one of the best players in the world and I’m lucky and grateful to have him as my team-mate.

“I’m certain that as we play alongside each other more, so the understanding will be even better and I’m sure that will happen as the season progresses.”
