Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, has hailed Bernardo Silva after the midfielder put in an influential display in their 3-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday.
Silva provided the assist for Erling Haaland and the team’s second goal at Old Trafford.
After the match, Guardiola praised the Portugal international’s versatility, intelligence and simple lifestyle off the pitch.
“He wears no earrings or tattoos; a normal car… incredible player for us.
“He can play as False nine, he’s so intelligent and everybody loves him.
“One of the best players I’ve seen in my life. He’s one of the best, for his intensity, clever and what a good guy he is,” Guardiola said.
Silva was on the verge of leaving City last summer, with Paris Saint-Germain keen on him.
But Guardiola managed to convince the player to stay and he has now signed a new deal with the Premier League champions.
