Manchester City attacking midfielder Bernardo Silva decided to go all out against the fans of Liverpool football club a day after his club clashed out of the 2019-2020 UEFA Champions League campaign.

The 26-year-old Portuguese playmaker took to his Twitter account on Sunday to hit back at Liverpool‘s fans who always troll him on Social media. He describes such fans of being “pathetic”, urging them to find something else to do with their lives.

Bernardo Silva who sat on the bench throughout 90 minutes in City’s quarter-final game against Lyon which they loss 3-1 on Saturday, admitted that Manchester City had a frustrating season after failing to win any other title except Carabao Cup.

The most frustrating aspect of the season for the Citizens is failing to progress beyond the quarter-finals stage of the UEFA Champions League for the third successive season since the 2017-2018 season.

“The 2019/2020 season has ended for us in a very disappointing way. To all the fans, we’re sorry for this frustrating season”, Bernardo Silva wrote on Twitter. “The only thing we can promise is that in 2020/2021 we’ll fight a lot to do much better and get back to winning important things for you guys!

“And to all Liverpool fans that have nothing else to do than to come to a Man City player account, I’m also sorry for you but for the wrong reasons…pathetic… go celebrate your titles, or try to find a partner, drink a beer with a friend, read a book…so many options!”

Bernardo Silva joined Manchester City from French Ligue 1 club Monaco in 2017 for a transfer worth about €50 million. In the last three seasons at the club, he has won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup title, two EFL Cup and one Community Shield.

The only thing lacking in the medals collection of the Portuguese star is a European club title which is the priority of Manchester City that has invested heavily with the aim of winning the Champions League.

In the just-concluded Premier League season, Bernardo was very much involved in City’s effort to retain the Premier League title they won in the 2018-2019 season. In the process of doing that, he scored  6 goals and made 7 assists. While in the Champions League, he played 7 matches and made only one assist.

Altogether this season, the Portuguese played 55 matches for Manchester City. In those matches, he scored 8 goals and made 10 assists. This was below his standard when compared to the 2018-2019 season where he scored 13 goals and made 14 assists in 51 appearances.

His performance in the 2018-2019 season was so outstanding that he won the club’s player of the year award and got into the PFA Team of the Year. A feat he couldn’t repeat or surpass in the just-concluded season.
