Manchester City’s extraordinary manager Pep Guardiola has said Bernardo Silva is the best footballer in the English Premier League.
Yes, Silva is a marvelous player, yet it somehow feels a little surprise to hear Pep say it, doesn’t it? With so many exceptional footballers in England, it is a big statement.
Pep was asked if Silva is right at the top as one of the best players in the league.
"The best," Guardiola said in his typically quick and intense replies at press conferences.
"When we made 98 points two or three years ago, he was the best, too,” he added as reported by the Daily Mirror.
"Take the videos and you will see.
"It [Silva's goal against Villa] was an incredible finish.
"The goal was good, it was quick. To beat them was an incredible step for us,” the Spaniard concluded.
Meanwhile, City are now on the way to Germany to battle RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League.
