Responding to an interview clip with Bernardo Silva courtesy of Bleacher Report, some Man City fans have been in full agreement over his verdict that the Sky Blues may have been unfairly treated in regards to individual player awards – with fans flocking to point out a perceived bias towards Liverpool.
Bernardo, who has scored five goals and assisted five others in the league this season, hasn’t exactly lived up to his heights of the 2018/2019 campaign – where the Portuguese playmaker won City’s Player of the Year award alongside a domestic quadruple and the UEFA Nations League with his national side.
Is there a media agenda against City
Now, speaking exclusively to Bleacher Report, the 25-year-old has come out to state his opinion over Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah winning the PFA Player of the Year award over Kevin De Bruyne during the 2017/2018 season – with the attacker stating that his teammate was ‘unbelievable‘ whilst Salah scored ‘a lot of goals‘.
As a result, City supporters have been in full agreement, find all of their best comments down below.

He’s absolutely spot on here, but we knew that already. The players obviously can see it

Remember Kuns first year in English football, outstanding 29 goals, won us the title for the first time in 44yrs, but Kyle Walker won the award?? 🙄🙄

Liverpool fans can’t really make up their mind on what they really want. When Salah won it Pool fans told us Salah was just a better individual with stats and KDB was in the best team. This season they want their player with no stats to win it because he play in the best team 😂
