Man City midfielder Bernardo Silva admits injury setback

Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva admits he picked up a knock in Portugal's 1-1 draw with Croatia.

He has confirmed his substitution in was precautionary.

The City midfielder was replaced at half-time of the friendly in the Algarve due to a groin complaint.

However, he has now revealed he hasn't sustained any serious damage, handing a boost to Pep Guardiola ahead of next weekend's visit of Fulham to the Etihad.

“I came off at half time because I have been having a little discomfort in the groin area, and with Mr. Fernando Santos we thought it was better not to risk the second half," he said.
