Bernardo Silva has described playing for Pep Guardiola at Manchester City as ‘a pleasure’ and says it his manager’s incredible attention to detail that makes the difference.

Since arriving at City in 2016, Guardiola has won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and two League Cups, and claimed Premier League Manager of the Season twice.

This has followed hugely successful spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, cementing the Spaniard as one of, if not the, best managers in the world.

Silva, who Guardiola signed from Monaco in 2017, says that City have found the ‘perfect combination’ with their squad and their manager as they look to make it three Premier League titles on the spin.

‘It’s all in the details,’ Silva told Man City’s official website. ‘Not only for me but for all the players it’s a pleasure to be managed by him and the results show that.

‘Over the last two seasons the way the team has played and the amount of trophies we have won shows that the players are good, the manager is good and it’s the perfect combination.’

Fellow City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne admits that improving on the performances of the last two Premier League seasons will be difficult, but that Guardiola and his side are always looking for new ways to break down their opponents.

‘Obviously teams are going to play differently, maybe even more defensively than they did, so we may have to learn how to break things down in a different way,’ said the Belgian.

‘That’s what we did last year differently to the previous season. That’s something that will come along the way, it’s not something that you can really prepare for now,

‘You can always improve but the main thing you must do as a team is stay constant.

‘To improve is more individual, but as a team to do much, much better than we did in the last two years is nearly impossible.’
