Man City’s Bernardo Silva: ‘The Premier League has been a huge disappointment’

Man City 22 points behind Liverpool

The last two seasons saw Manchester City dominate English football.

In the 2017/18 campaign, City garnered a record-breaking 100 points in the Premier League, whilst also winning the 2018 League Cup.

The Sky Blues then earned 98 points in the PL last term, once again winning the title.

Pep Guardiola’s outfit would also win the FA and League Cups last season, becoming the first male English side to clinch the domestic treble.

This season, though, has been a big disappointment from a Man City perspective.

The Citizens are currently sat a staggering 22 points behind table-topping Liverpool.

City have also been pretty poor at the back this season.

Bernardo Silva on Premier League campaign

And now, with Liverpool looking set to beat Man City to the title, Bernardo Silva has been speaking about City’s PL campaign.

The midfielder stated that the Premier League has been a huge disappointment, with City so far behind Liverpool.

Silva also all but conceded the title to Jurgen Klopp’s outfit, too, when he stated that City now have to fight for second place:

“The Premier League has been a huge disappointment to be so far from Liverpool and now we have to fight for the second position.

“It hurts a lot because when you start a season, you always want to go for the Premier League, it’s the main competition and the most important for the fans. “

Silva then tried to explain why Man City are so far behind Liverpool this term.

The Portuguese international stated that he thinks it was a mix of plenty of things, with Silva also claiming that the little details haven’t gone their way:

 “So it’s very disappointing, no one expected us to be this far from Liverpool in January or February so it’s something that we need to learn from. We need to understand what failed and how we can solve it.

“I don’t think it’s how you defend or attack, I think it’s a mix of plenty of things. I think little details make a huge difference and if you look at us this season, all the little details never went out way. It’s not an excuse, we should’ve done better, and we are very disappointed in ourselves.”

Will Man City’s 2019/20 season be seen as a failure?

City are once again in the League Cup final, and you would fancy them to see off relegation-battling Aston Villa to lift the trophy.

But with the league title looking extremely likely to be heading to Merseyside, unless Man City win the Champions League this year, this campaign will likely go down as a failure for Pep Guardiola’s side.
