Guardiola on Bernardo's contract extension
Silva signed a new contract with the Premier League leaders until the summer of 2025 this week, something which delighted Guardiola.
“I am delighted, happy and grateful that Bernardo still has the desire to be with us. In the end, we judge our players on what they do on the pitch and he was one of the most - maybe the most – effective this season," Guardiola told the club's official website.
“He is a lovely guy, people appreciate him and not just for his skills, for the way he behaves. I am grateful, delighted. When players of his quality want to stay, it’s an honour for us. I am grateful he agreed a new contract - it means he wants to stay, and I like it," he added.
