Liverpool striker, Diogo Jota, has named Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva as one Portugal player he would take at Anfield.
Jota described Silva as one of the most intelligent football players he has ever known.
He said this while speaking on the Mark Goldbridge That’s Football YouTube channel.
When asked which player he would team up with for Liverpool from the Portugal camp, barring Cristiano Ronaldo, Jota chose Silva.
He said, “Bernardo, yeah, Bernardo Silva for me probably the… one of the most for sure the most intelligent football guys I have known and the way he can hide the ball as well from the opponents is special and I think I will go for him.”
Silva joined Manchester City in the summer of 2017 from Monaco.
He has already established himself as an integral player of Pep Guardiola’s squad.
The 29-year-old is renowned for his creativity, dribbling, work-rate and versatility as an attacking midfielder and right-winger.
