​Man City boss Guardiola praises Bernardo Silva resurgence: His parents must be proud!

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has praised his resurgent midfield star Bernardo Silva.

Silva had fallen out of favour with Guardiola this season, finding himself relegated to the substitute's bench on occasion.

But the Portugal has emerged as a key member of the starting eleven this season.

"What a player. That's all I can say," Guardiola said about Silva post-game after his side's 3-1 win over Everton.

"What a player. Everything he does he does incredibly well. The year we won the second Premier League in a row he was unstoppable, he was an important player for us - and he is back.

"I am more than pleased because I said many times he is a lovely person.

"As a manager you always dream to have people like Bernardo; his mum and dad must be so proud about the son that they have."
