Bernardo Silva has neither appreciated Manchester City’s exit from the UEFA Champions League nor rival supporters antagonizing the Premier League runners-up.

Silva, 26, first tweeted his disappointment that City’s UCL dreams died three wins shy of a first title before moving onto “all Liverpool fans” who visited his social media time lines.

The midfielder first said, “The 2019/2020 season has ended for us in a very disappointing way. To all the fans, we’re sorry for this frustrating season. 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!”

Then he turned his attention to certain supporters of the current Premier League champions and still-reigning UCL winners (at least for another fortnight or so).

Perhaps ironically, Silva’s inclusion in Saturday’s lineup at some point might’ve flipped the switch for City, who lost 3-1 with some big misses for stars like Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus.
