Man City playmaker Bernardo Silva relishes festive period

Bernardo Silva is relishing the hectic Christmas schedule facing Manchester City.

The Premier League leaders are currently involved in a 13-match run over six weeks.

While the traditional festive period generally irks managers, Silva is embracing the calendar.

"It's a little bit different because both countries where I played before, Portugal and France, we had a Christmas break," he told reporters.

"Here you don't stop so it's a little bit complicated. But it's good to play every three days.

"We complain a little bit but it's good because we love this game and we love to play. And it's a tradition in England so we have to respect it."
