A lot of City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions on the claims made by Bernardo Silva that Man City stars have been unfairly snubbed for individual honours in the past
City have won the title four times in the Premier League era, with the two highest totals ever, but have never had a Player of the Year. Liverpool, meanwhile, have had four winners and Tottenham three despite never lifting the title.
Bernardo Silva in a Q&A on Instagram believes that Manchester City stars have been unfairly snubbed for PFA Player of the Year awards in the past.
“Three seasons ago, we won the league, [Liverpool] were 30 points behind and Kevin De Bruyne had an unbelievable season. Mo Salah scores a lot of goals – he’s a great player, I admire him a lot, I’m not saying otherwise – but they gave the award to Salah and not De Bruyne,” Silva told Bleacher Reportin a Q&A on Instagram .
“The season after, it’s very tight. Raheem Sterling was on the run with Van Dijk. [It was] very tight but they gave it to Van Dijk.
“This [campaign], again, De Bruyne is having another unbelievable season. We’re behind… But because Liverpool are champions, probably one of them will win the award again.
“David Silva, Kun Aguero never won the PFA Player of the Year. I think the individual awards are very relative and it’s important, but it’s not that important. People should stop thinking about that too much in my opinion.
“I don’t want this to be polemic. I talked about Liverpool players, but I admire their team, I admire their players – it’s nothing to do with them, it’s just a small example.”
In reaction to the interview shared on Twitter by Man City Xtra, Manchester City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions.
Say it louder, Bernardo!! 📣

KDB had a fantastic season but Salah broke the PL goal scoring record for a single season. What made it more special is that NO ONE saw it coming.

Nice to see Bernardo pointing out the obvious media bias against City, it’s clear as daylight but who cares it’s a team game and we go the whole way instead of getting 2nd place…
