Bernardo Silva speaks out on Manchester City treble hopes

Manchester City are on course to make history this season.


Manchester City are on course to become only the second-ever English side to win the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup in the same season.

The Sky Blues previously completed a domestic treble in 2018/19, but they are yet to win the Champions League.

However, if they can get past Real Madrid in the semi-final, they will be heavy favourites to see off one of the Milan outfits in the final.

The Premier League also looks to be City’s barring a major slip-up, whilst an FA Cup final with Manchester United awaits in June.

Standing in Manchester City’s way in Europe is a Real Madrid side who have dominated the Champions League throughout history. Now though, Bernardo Silva believes City should not fear Los Blancos:

“Why should we fear them? We’ll try to keep the momentum we’ve built over two months to arrive very confident to beat them, knowing they won the Champions League last season for a reason. It’s not about the badge, it’s never about the badge,” Bernardo added. “It’s about the players that are on the pitch.

“We’re not going to lie, this is definitely a competition we want because it’s the only one we haven’t won yet,” he stated. “We’re in a very good position to be fighting for all three trophies.”

On the treble, Silva continued: “The FA Cup final is a derby, it would be lovely for our fans. Then the Champions League is a trophy we’d really love, and the Premier League would be five in six years and we would go down in history.

“I wouldn’t be able to tell you which one I want the most. I want them all, a lot. “And we’re going to keep battling away, knowing that, yes, we could win them all, yet we could lose them all too.”
