Bernardo claims Etihad Player of the Month

Bernardo Silva has been voted the Etihad Player of the Month for October.

The Portuguese midfielder, who also picked up September’s award, edged out teammates Phil Foden and Joao Cancelo for top spot.


Over 8,000 votes were cast in an incredibly close contest, with Bernardo’s 45% share of the vote just enough to pip Foden’s 44%.

It means the midfielder becomes the first player to claim the prize in successive months since Sergio Aguero in August and September 2019.

The 27-year-old’s tireless work rate and technical poise have proved vital for City so far this season, with particularly standout performances coming against Liverpool, Burnley and Brighton across October.

Congratulations to Bernardo from everyone at the Club and thanks to the many thousands of you who took the time to vote.
