Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany has said that Bernardo Silva has the credentials to become the club captain in the future. The Portuguese has been a top performer for the Citizens since arriving from AS Monaco in 2017 and he made the PFA Team of the Year this year after contributing seven goals and seven assists in the top-flight.
Speaking to RMC Sport, Kompany said that Silva has the leadership qualities within him and he deserves to become a future captain at the club, he quipped: “I say to him often you are 50% clown, 50% leader. When he becomes 25% clown, 75% leader he will become the captain of this team. He is so strong and to be honest there is nobody who deserves this title more.”
Manchester City attacker Bernardo Silva has excluded Manchester United when asked about the potential challengers for the Premier League title this season. The Citizens have continued the form from the previous campaign with a 10-match unbeaten run and they are currently topping the standings ahead of Liverpool on goal difference.
As such, Pep Guardiola’s side are widely considered as the favourites to reclaim their title and when asked about the same, Silva said: “I think either Chelsea and Liverpool, they are very strong. Arsenal as well, even Tottenham. I think it will be harder because last season nobody was expecting us to win as many games and to reach that level of points so this season the teams they know they have to do better to beat us. Of course it will be very hard, but we will work every game to get the three points and at the end of it try and celebrate winning one more Premier League.”
