Celebrating the Premier League title he secured with Manchester City on Sunday, jubilant Jack Grealish carried Bernardo Silva on Monday “thanking him for his early departure” in the final game against Aston Villa.
Celebrations are in full swing currently in Manchester, as City celebrate the title of champions of England. Pep Guardiola’s men struggled to the bitter end of the Premier League: trailing 2-0 to a quarter-hour from the end of their final game against Aston Villa, and turned the tide at the end of the game after Bernardo Silva was knocked out (3-2). The poor Portuguese entertained teammate Jack Grealish, who repeatedly mocked him during the title celebrations.
Excited all day, the England midfielder waited for him to give him the microphone to drop a small interference on Silva. “I would like to thank everyone (for the title). But the one I want to thank in particular is Bernardo Silva, because he came out at 70 yesterday because it was really fun!” He shouted in a broken voice, in front of the cheerful speech of the audience. On the ground, the Portuguese made way for Ilkay Gundogan, a double composer a few minutes later.
“The secret is to keep you on the bench.”
A few minutes later Grealish, who was still cheerful, was able to repeat his words in front of his colleague, in a story that Silva posted on Instagram. “The secret of our victory is to get Riyadh (Mahrez) and then Bernardo Silva out of the field as quickly as possible,” he said with a laugh. “The secret was to keep you on that seat,” the interested party replied, before leaving in a long laugh. The No. 10 City did not even play during the match against the FIA.
Prior to that, Grealish was still admitting that Silva had been “very strong this season”. Notably, the two men pictured themselves a little earlier, arm by arm, singing an oasis song. A vocal performance that must have delighted Noel Gallagher, the former member of the group. Present during Skyblues celebrations the day before, the English singer had to be taken care of by emergency services after receiving an involuntary head-blow from Robin Dias’ father.
