Manchester City players have committed to the promise made by their coach Josep Guardiola, to organize an honorary corridor for Liverpool players crowned from last week for the Premier League title for the first time in the club's history.
In the game that brought the two teams together yesterday and won the "Citizens" in a clean quad, it seemed as though all the players applauded the men of coach Jurgen Klopp, but the scrutiny in the photos and video shows that the Portuguese Bernardo Silva tweeted out of tune and refused to clap like the rest of his teammates.
Moreover, the 25-year-old Silva did not show any interest in the passage of the "Reds" players and was busy drinking water from his bottle, as he quickly left the place in the honorary corridor and returned to the bench before all the players left Liverpool.
The video of Silva spread on social media and called for harsh reactions, including:
- "Bernardo Silva was seen in the honorary corridor not clapping like the rest of his teammates, and he was drinking water as Liverpool players passed between the City players in the honorary corridor."
- "On the honorary aisle, the scene of Bernardo Silva standing shocked without applauding or taking care of what was going on was shocking."
- "Bernardo showed lack of respect and courtesy with this move, but I am not surprised."
- "Bernardo Silva's reaction shows the amount of pain and anguish the team was feeling."
