Man City ace Bernardo sorry about Cancelo departure

Manchester City star Bernardo Silva has admitted that losing Joao Cancelo has impacted the dressing room.

The Citizens let Cancelo leave for Bayern Munich on loan in January.

The defender is reported to have fallen out with manager Pep Guardiola regarding a lack of playing time.

Speaking with reporters after their 1-0 Premier League loss to Tottenham, Silva outlined the importance of Cancelo.

“I'm happy for him because it was the path that Joao chose to follow happily in his life," he told ELEVEN Portugal.

“[But I'm] Sad for the team and for me that I won't be able to count on him every day.

“He knows he's a person I really like, but he made the best decision for him and I'm happy for him."
