Manchester City squad lament over 'unfair' UEFA and FIFA snubs claims Bernardo Silva

Bernardo Silva has revealed that Manchester City players believe it is unfair that they are consistently snubbed for UEFA and FIFA individual awards.

Despite having a clean sweep of all domestic trophies last season, only Raheem Sterling made it in the top ten of the UEFA player of the year award – and he finished tenth, behind winner Virgil van Dijk and three more Liverpool players. 

Silva revealed that City players talk about being snubbed on the international individual awards, "Collective titles are always more important than individual titles.

"Inside the camp we talk about it, and of course we feel it is unfair, but what matters is that we have won four titles and I have even added it to the Euro Nations. But the nominee is entitled to choose the players."

City also had no representatives in the ten-man shortlist for the FIFA Best Men's Player award – while Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard both made the cut.
